WTN: Saumur and Granit

2005 Paul Filliatreau Saumur
$12. Imp: Dressner. 13% abv. Synth cork.
This is really nice cab franc. Juicy fruit, minerals, medium body, mild acidity, and soft tannins make this a good summer match for a light summer meal. Once again, Dressner comes through with a tasty qpr winner.

2005 Domaine de la Pépière (Marc Ollivier) Cuvée Granit Vin de Pays du Jardin de la France Marches de Bretagne
$11 Imp: Dressner. 12% abv
One of my favorite Loire reds is a bit heftier in '05 than it was in '04. It’s still got that wonderful green leafy/herbal flavor mixed with zippy red fruit and a mineral core that I really enjoy. This wine is just so alive and refreshing.

"This is a really nice cab franc". Forumites, we have true believer after all these years!

:lol: I've enjoyed most every Loire cab franc that I've had, Bob. Those overly woody Cali and Aussie cab francs fruit bombs that I had early on threw me off this particular grape.

Thanks for the note, Bill. Our local retailer has a few of Dressner's wines, including this one. I'll swing for the big bucks! :-)
