    May 3, 2021 - Pyrazine-o-mania. But squeaky clean, not a sweaty horse for miles. Decanted off a spade-full of chunky sediment. Rich and ripe (for Loire), clearly showing the vintage, but nothing roasted or cloying. Tomacco and clay-earth forward, potpourri and mineral, and some cran-cherry lurking in the background. Good complexity and ready to drink, but will moderate tannins still very much lapping at the gums.

    July 15, 2018 - Sunday blinds (Chicago, IL): Served double blind. Pyrazines! Clearly Loire cabernet franc, and while this is still really green, there's a ripeness of fruit here that made me guess a riper vintage (2005). No roasted character here at all. There's a slight bit of animal funk on the nose, but this is relatively clean.

    February 22, 2018 - Slightly turbid light red. Green olive, maybe a hint of brett. Light, full of soil, red fruited. While I've had variable experiences recently with this, I liked this bottle as a good rendition of Loire Cabernet Franc.

    March 21, 2017 - From memory. Drinking nicely w/ perfect acidity and weight.

    January 30, 2017 - Loire Night (San Francisco): Lighter ruby than the 2005. More secondary aromatics and truffles. Light to medium weight and feel. Combination of green and candied fruit-somewhat odd juxtaposition but good nonetheless. Much better than the library bottle I tried last week. This has been quite variable.
