Bernard Baudry Les Granges Chinon Cabernet Franc 2015
2015 was a wonderful vintage for this address with superb ripeness. It's packed with fleshy, floral-noted, purple fruit aromas and flavours and finishes with crunchy freshness and mouth-filling perfume.
This is delicious. It is sleek and fresh with floral, nectarine and pear aromas. In the mouth it bounces around with good concentration and a nice minerally finish that is the hallmark of all Jerome's wines.
Domaine du Pas St Martin Saumur ‘Pierre Frites’ Cabernet Franc 2015
Domaine du Pas Saint Martin's Le Pierre Frite is made from 100% Cabernet Franc grown in siliceous-limestone soils. The wine has very smooth and integrated tannins as well as bright red fruit and floral flavours.
An impressive combination of silky fruit and finishing grip. Raised for nine months on lees, its attack is bright-eyed and racy with focused citrus and currant flavours, texture and a bright, persistent close.
Intense and complex, first suggesting violets and lychees, then its nose develops citrus aromas with rhubarb and apple notes. Fresh attack followed by a demanding mouth, then a touch of acidity at the finish with rhubarb and lemon hints.
