Tasting Notes

I first met vigneron Jean-Noël Millon while attending an organic wine fair in the South of France. The wines were impressive, so we arranged to meet on my trip through the Loire a couple of months later. A visit to the winery led to a trip through the ancient cellar, which had been carved from the chalky stone (known as tuffeau) below two centuries before. As we progressed from chamber to chamber, it began to feel more a like a spelunking expedition. Ancient coins were pressed into the walls by past workers, the old wine press was still intact, even the old pulley system for transporting barrels and equipment to the surface was evident, though replaced by a just slightly more modern conveyance.

    Really delightful Cabernet Franc, from Saumur, medium bodied, and very floral, with an intense nose of crushed rocks, violets and little red fruits. I would suggest serving it a bit chilled. Perfect with Indian food.

    This is a wonderful red wine with a beautiful, expressive and inviting nose. In the mouth it is lively with nice red fruit flavors that are balance out with a crisp finish. It is medium bodied with just the right amount of fruit and mineral notes. The La source Du Ruault will go best with food.

    This represents all that is good and delicious about the wines of the region. Planted in the sandy and gravelly soils over the tuffeau, this powerhouse Cabernet Franc is rich, representing the depth of fruit from the 2015 vintage, but it is also full of finesse. The tannins are quite fine and the finish is long on black fruit, cedary spice and black pepper.
