Charles Joguet "Clos de la Dioterie" Chinon 2012

94+ Our Score
(7/2015) Joguet is the most storied grower in Chinon and "Clos de la Dioterie" is Joguet's most special wine. Dioterie is a true single vineyard parcel, situated right next to the winery, and is home to the property's oldest vines. We were lucky enough to taste this special wine in Joguet's famed chalk caves of Chinon. It is a deliciously concentrated effort, and though it will ideally sit for 5-7 years before being consumed, it is more approachable than one would think. Comparable to world class right-bank Bordeaux, with a more nervy spine.

Domaine Guiberteau "Les Motelles" Saumur Rouge 2011

90 Vinous, Joel Payne
(12/2014) "Dark ruby. A redcurrant aroma is complicated by earthy nuances of truffle and tobacco. At once energetic and suave, showing a sappy quality to the Bing cherry and tobacco flavors. Finishes with firm tannins and good juicy persistence. This cabernet franc comes from a one-hectare plot that was replanted in 1955. 3,500 bottles produced."

Roark Wine Company Cabernet Franc 2013

91 Our Score
(8/2014) Ryan Roark seems to be styling this after a Loire Valley bottling, more similar to a Chinon than Saumur-Champigny, with it's darker color and deeper fruit tones. The wine shows hints of green, thankfully, an elegant palate and a bit of front of mouth grip. It's lovely - only missing the chalky mineral tones, but it's from California, not France, and we like it this way! Decant and drink over a couple days to really see what it's about!

Domaine Patrick Baudouin "Les Coteaux d'Ardenay" Anjou Rouge 2011

91 Our Score
(5/2016) A fresh Loire Valley red made from 100% Cabernet Franc. A spicy, mineral-laden nose leads to rich black fruit, spice, wood and tobacco flavors on the palate. Rich and full-bodied with a velvety finish.

Field Recordings "Franc" Paso Robles Cabernet Franc 2015

90 Our Score
(9/2016) This juicy and delicious Cabernet Franc is sourced from various vineyards throughout Paso Robles. With 5% Malbec added in, it offers up ripe and fresh flavors of black cherry, blueberry and blackberry with a hint of earth and a whiff of fresh and aromatic green herbs. The soft texture comes from the relaxing eight months it spent in neutral French oak which also adds a touch of spice while preserving the wine's fruit forward style. Chill this down for ultimate enjoyment and drink it with grilled sausages, chicken, pork or all on its own!

Bernard Baudry "Les Granges" Chinon 2015

90+ Our Score
(11/2016) This complex Cabernet Franc from the Loire Valley's Chinon region is one rockin' value! It offers up a symphony of flavors ranging from clean and fresh red cherry and raspberry fruits to notes of pepper, leather, tobacco, violet, and dried herbs. There's even a streak of rocky minerality running through the middle of it all. This savory, medium-bodied red has well integrated tannins that make it a great companion for an array of comfort foods like roast chicken or hearty beef stews.

Domaine de la Chanteleuserie "Cuvee Alouettes" Bourgueil Rouge 2014

90 Our Score
(4/2016) Right on the heels of Chanteleuserie's popular 2013 bottling comes this outstanding new release of Cuvée Alouettes. A customer and staff favorite, this 2014 offers up all of the delicious flavors we've come to love in this wine, but with even more depth and richness than 2013. The mix of dark red and black fruit flavors are ripe and pure, complemented by earthy notes of dried leaves, twigs and forest floor. This dry, medium bodied Cabernet Franc is soft with a great mouth feel, well integrated tannins and a long finish. As with most Loire Valley reds, it is best served with a slight chill.

(5/2016) One of our perennial customer favorites is delicious yet again! Sourced from Cabernet Franc grapes grown in the Loire Valley region of Chinon, the Couly never disappoints, giving juicy red berry fruit, a hint of candied watermelon, green bell pepper, a generous mouthfeel and a lively finish. Chill it and get it!

Domaine les Pins "Cuvee Les Rochettes" Bourgueil Rose 2015

The quality reminds us of Rosés closer to a $20 price tag. Due to our direct-import relationship we can offer it for so much less!
90 Our Score
(5/2016) Domaine Les Pins is a family-owned property in Bourgueil, just across the river from Chinon. Here, fifth generation vigneron Philippe Pitault-Landry produces red and Rosé wines from sustainably farmed Cabernet Franc. Their "Cuvée Les Rochettes" Rosé is plump and dense in the mouth and like all good pink wine, is incredibly refreshing. It shows cherry, watermelon, plump strawberry, a hint of lilac and white blossoms, and a slight peppery note on the finish. The texture and balance are sensational and really make this a special wine. Put a good chill on it to quench your thirst on these beautiful spring evenings.
