    April 6, 2019 - Pretty red fruit scent with a nice floral lift a bit of subtle oak and cement. Crunchy red fruit on the palette. Generous in the mouth with good depth of flavor. Finishes with chalky minerals and a taste of cement. Smooth and silky finish with a bit of oak or stem flavor. Excellent value. Drinking really well at this time.

    August 6, 2015 - This was a lovely deep bottle of Bourgueil and sorry that it is my last as this was worth waiting for and it has kept well. It would have been better to keep to the end of the drinking window as it has matured nicely and was very smooth.

    January 30, 2015 - I earlier was concerned that I was dragging down the scores for this wine, but the trend has passed my earlier score. So I will say this was a good but not great CF. It was surprisingly smooth, with a reticent aroma. the fruit was more out-front this time, although it came on with a fair bit of oak. Like many French wines, more time in the glass was to its benefit. This wasn't particularly expensive, but CF from the Loire rarely is, and I wouldn't call it a huge bargain, either, especially after Garagiste charges you the random shipping cost. Not a bad choice for your T-day turkey; we had it with a roasted chicken.

    January 19, 2015 - I agree with prognosis and tasting notes of guitarguy. Not really going anywhere but should hold in there for a couple years.
