Lovely lift to the gamey aromas of blackberry, violet and wild flowers. Discreetly sweet, layered and seamless, showing perfectly integrated acidity and a chalky quality to the vibrant tannins. Juicy, vinous, intense and delicately suave, this distinguished cabernet franc finishes with subdued cassis fruit, subtle spices and superb length, reminding Nady of the 1993. -Joel Payne

The 2011 Saumur-Champigny Les Poyeux is dressed in a dark and dense red color. Very pure, intense, ripe, concentrated and almost bloody, as well as leathery on the nose where black olives, licorice, black cherries and wild berries, including raspberries, are exhibited. The wine starts silky and elegant and develops a crescendo of intense, concentrated and sweet aromas of black fruits, raspberries and cigar box. The tannins are matured and elegant, the finish intense and refined by a severe woody note. This is no big or over-concentrated Cabernet Franc, but it is very well balanced and accessible early as was the 2006. Drink now until 2025+. -Stephan Reinhardt
