Dom De La Chanteleuserie Bourgueil Alouettes 2014 Product #30887 (In Stock)
Dom De La Chanteleuserie Bourgueil Alouettes 2014 Dom De La Chanteleuserie Bourgueil Alouettes 2014

As Wine Advocate wrote a few years ago, "Thierry Boucard’s Bourgueils from Domaine de la Chanteleuserie and the downright ridiculous value they offer should win many new converts to the cause of the Loire Cabernet Franc."  This is 100% Cabernet Franc raised all in tank, and it was one of the first wines imported by Kermit Lynch back in the 1970s.  The 2014 edition delivers fresh, crunchy, cherry and red-currant fruit with a nice dose of crushed herb.  Finishes mouthwatering and fresh.  An easygoing bistro red.

Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Les Galuches 2015 Product #30914 (In Stock)
Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Les Galuches 2015 Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Les Galuches 2015

A great 2015, even better than the 89 point WS 2014.  The Spectator described that as, "Bright cherry and red currant fruit is liberally laced with tobacco and shiso leaf notes, giving this an almost snappy edge. A taut chalky spine runs through the finish."  In 2015, the wine is richer, rounder, and has more sweet fruit but finishes with fine energy and very fine tannins.  A bistro beauty!

Dom Fabrice Gasnier Chinon Rose 2015 Product #31077 (In Stock)
Dom Fabrice Gasnier Chinon Rose 2015 Dom Fabrice Gasnier Chinon Rose 2015

The energy, tangy cherry fruit and crushed  herb freshness that makes Chinon's Cabernet Franc such a great all-around "bistro red" works even better in this vibrant rose that will charm and delight you.  Fabrice Gasnier has transformed his family's Loire Valley estate by converting to certified biodynamic farming and then doing as little as possible to his grapes in the winery.

This is 100% Cabernet Franc from younger vines growing on Chinon's gravely, Loire riverside, vineyards.  After a brief stay on the skins, it's pressed into tank and allowed to finish low and slow with 5-6 months on the lees. In 2015, the fruit is huge and ripe - busting with bold ripe red and Bing cherry with squirt of ripe strawberry for good measure.  Spicy crushed herb, savory tobacco, and a twist of black pepper give the fruit plenty of verve and complexity on the mouthwatering finish.  Fun to drink on its own and better still with cheeses, salads, and grilled poultry.

Relic Cabernet Franc The Prior 2012 Product #30170 (In Stock)
Relic Cabernet Franc The Prior 2012 Relic Cabernet Franc The Prior 2012

375 cases made; 3 available.  As Robert Parker said, "this is a killer example of this varietal, which can do wonders in selected micro-climates in Napa."  In this case, rugged Stagecoach Vineyard (75%) and Calistoga's Frediani Vineyards give this fantastic purity and aromatics to go with the plush palate.  18% Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure and 4% Petit Verdot (both from Stagecoach) layers on another dose of complexity.  Fabulous stuff.

“An absolutely profound wine is the 2012 Cabernet Franc The Prior. I don’t know what source Mike Hirby used for his Cabernet Franc, but this is a killer example of this varietal, which can do wonders in selected micro-climates in Napa. Forest floor, blueberry, black raspberry and acacia flowers all swirl from the glass in the complex aromatics offered up. It’s lovely texture, which is full-bodied, but light on its feet has produced a rather sublime example of Cabernet Franc that is supple, round, beautifully textured and quite pure with a positive finish. Drink it over the next decade.”Wine Advocate 95 points
