2005 Charles Joguet Chinon Franc de Pied Les Varennes du Grand Clos. One of the greatest wines made in the Loire. Unfortunately, the vines that used to produce this wine had to be uprooted after the 2006 vintage because they had been ravaged by phylloxera. This is ultra deep and dark and shows pretty tobacco and black pepper to add to the inky blackberry flavors. Mid palate and finish for days. Too bad this was my very last bottle.
Cabernet Franc, Les Muriers, Anjou Villages AC, Loïc Mahé, Loire Valley, France, 12.5% abv. 2013, US$20
These are a few of my favourite things.
From a site located in the western part of Savennières and north of the Loire River, Brittany native Loïc Mahé grows bio/organic grapes on shale soils and makes unfiltered wines fermented with natural yeasts and few interventions like sulfites or chaptalisation. 93 more words
