    January 15, 2021 - 2009 Château de Fosse-Sèche Eolithe. Saumur. Cabernet Franc 98% Cabernet Sauvignon 2%
    Rich tart cherry and violets. Bright and fresh. Nice mineral notes. Still very young

    I can’t tell a direct effect of this being aged in Beer barrels

    June 12, 2020 - Drinking fantastic now on P&P. Plenty of ripe fruit and earthy nuance. Bravo.

    June 11, 2020 - A bit of dulling to the color. The nose offers as much damp earth and herbacousness as fruit. On the palate, loads of blackberry and red plum, plenty of leafy cab franc notes, and some mild anise. The remaining tannins are chalky but soft. The mid-palate is a bit thin, but the finish is long and complex, with powerful, citrus-like acidity playing off the lingering flavors. Another modest wine that does great with mid-term aging.

    April 16, 2020 - Schön strukturierter, kühler Körper, das kann der Cabernet Franc, wenn der Winzer es auch kann. Sehr feines, exzellent gealtertes Exemplar, volle Sauerkirschennase, am Gaumen noch viel rote Frucht und fein verwobene Tannine. War eine Woche offen ohne Wertverlust, macht großen Spaß.

    October 4, 2018 - drinking very nicely. Tannins still present, enhancing the impact on the palate. Unlikely to improve from here but no rush. I preferred this to the Terres Chaudes 2010 which I opened for comparison.
