90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The Anjou Villages appellation is warm enough to ripen both versions of Cabernet, Franc and Sauvignon. This rich while balanced wine is good proof of that with its ripe black fruits and acidity. It wouldn't be Loire without the smoky, lightly stalky backdrop that will allow the wine to age. Drink from 2020. (RV)" (09/2018) K&L Notes: Established over 50 years ago, the 4th generation of the Denis family now runs this operation. Julien is the winemaker, Stephane in charge of the viticulture and Vincent oversees the administrat...


2018 Domaine de la Noblaie "Goutte de Rose" Chinon Rosé
Top Pick!
93 points Winedoctor.com: "This is 100% Cabernet Franc, vinified in stainless steel, and it is already in bottle, very sensibly under screwcap. It kicks off with a beautifully fresh and dusty nose, showing subtle peach and strawberry fruits, lightly dusted with minerals. The palate feels appropriately fresh, tense, pure and cool, with a polished style, an ebullient fruit character streaked with mineral and acid veins. It closes with a very fine and peppery flourish in the finish. All in all a very attractive rosé. From my first Loire 2018 report." (02/2...

From the domaine: "Our domaine is the work of four successive generations at Cléré Sur Layon. Whilst understanding how to evolve and keep up to date, the estate has grown from 5 to 80 hectares over 50 years.

2014 La Source du Ruault "Clos de la Côte" Saumur-Champigny Rouge
Top Pick!
"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 below (known as tuffeau) two centuries before. As we progressed from chamber to chamber, it began to feel more like a spelunking expedition. Ancient coins were pressed into the walls by past workers, the old wine press was still intact, even the o...

Joël Taluau is a fabulous grower in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil known for making some of the purest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the Loire, unmarred by the intrusion of oak--which he hasn't used in production since 1986. He was also the first producer in the appellation to begin domaine bottling. The Vieilles Vignes, from a single plot of Cabernet Franc planted in 1934, is prized for its power, depth and grace. This flagship wine is meant to age, and the large format bottle will have helped to preserve freshness.

Joel B Payne writes: "Although he still owns half of Couly-Dutheil, Pierre Couly was thrown out by his brother Jacques when the latter took control of the family business ten years ago. It is not quite fratricide, but it was particularly odd because both were near the age of retirement when it happened.

2018 Eric Cottat Sancerre Rouge
Top Pick!
We were first introduced to the wines of Eric Cottat a few years back. He was brought to our attention by one of our long-time friends and winemakers in Sancerre and we brought in a small amount as that was all we were allowed to take at the time. Eric is a one-man show and only produces a small amount of wines each vintage for family, friends, and close customers, and then sells the rest of his fruit off to other eager producers in the region. Last year I had the opportunity to pay Mr. Cottat a visit and quickly became enamored by how he goes about doin...

2018 Aurore Dezat Sancerre Rouge
Top Pick!
Typically when you think Sancerre, you think crisp, chalky white wine. But the region also produces phenomenal Pinot Noir. One of the aspects of Sancerre that makes for great Sauvignon Blanc is the limestone and flint soils, which lend depth of minerality and gorgeous aromatics. These same soil characteristics also make for incredible Pinot Noir with plenty of depth and personality. One of our best new-direct import producers in Sancerre, Aurore Dezat, makes just such a wine. If you love silky, round Pinot Noir with gorgeous dark cherry notes and layers ...

93 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "Jérôme has proven himself with this cuvée, which in recent vintages has been a stellar 'entry-level' wine. The 2018 vintage does not disappoint in this regard. Tasted twice. From the first bottling, the bottle opened the day before my visit, this has a softer and more floral nose, but presents a delicate, pencil-fine style on the palate, with a lightly chalky structure. From the second bottling, which was completed just ten weeks after the first, the bottle opened on the day of tasting, this presents a darker and...

The winemakers at family estate Joël Taluau say that they cultivate pleasure above all else, truly care for the soil and grapes, and make wine in a natural way. Winery note: "The vintage Vieilles Vignes comes from vines aged over 35 and up to 80 years old, planted on clay-limestone soils. These are tannic wines with aromas of very ripe red fruits: depth, complexity and elegant tannins ensure a long life. They are to consume, preferably, 4 to 5 years after their bottling and will age about ten years according to your cellar."

93 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "From the kaolin clay terroir on the slopes above the domaine, this cuvée was bottled in April 2019. Aromatically it opens with the scents of black olives, dark cherries and blackcurrant, sweet and perfumed. This confidence comes through on the palate, albeit with a pencil-fine definition to the wine's admirable substance, in a very pure style, with notes of acacia, hawthorn and dark, floral hedgerow fruits. There are little notes of cigar box and pencil shaving, and underneath there lies a fine backbone of chalky...

Stephan Reinhardt writes: "Certified as a biodynamic wine producer for ten years now, Domaine Vacheron is surely one of the highlights in the Sancerrois. Lead by Jean-Dominique and his cousin Jean-Laurent, the family domaine produces a range of different single vineyard Sancerres in white, red and pink that reflects not just the rich variety of the terroirs in the region, but the concept of the cousins who seem to demonstrate that the Sancerreois is no less fascinating than the Côte d'Or. In fact, the rich and powerful whites (38 of the 50 hectares are p...

From the importer: "For Thierry Michon, the gregarious force behind one of the Loire’s best-kept secrets, Domaine Saint Nicolas, it’s all about the soil. Working on schist and silex a stone’s throw away from the Atlantic, Thierry is the prophet of biodynamics in this tiny viticultural area. His vineyards never see a non-organic product. He has slowly purchased buffer zones all around his property to prevent chemical products from other winemakers from seeping into his parcels. For him, biodynamics isn’t a pragmatic consideration, it’s a religion. Domain...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The entry-level Pinot Noir from this red-wine specialist reveals ripe and juicy red-berry flavors and a core of tannins. The wine has structure, density and rich fruit all within a balanced structure. (RV)" (12/2018)

This red comes from 40-60 year old Gamay from a single block of vines, harvested by hand and fermented and aged in tank for eight months before release. Pure and rich, it represents an astounding value in Touraine and the Loire as a whole!

La Noue is a 2.5 hectare vineyard plot from which Domaine Claude Riffault makes their red and rosé wine. The plot is divided into seven adjacent vineyards featuring Terres Blanches and Kimmeridgian marl soils with 100% Pinot Noir vines ranging from 8 to 56 years old. The rosé is allowed some light skin contact to gain color, complexity, and aromatic interest during its vinification.

As with Les Chiens-Chiens, this too was bottled in April 2019. The nose carries the memory of the barrels, with scents of cigar box, along with crushed chalk, peony, violets, hawthorn, damson and wild black cherry, fresh and pure. The palate shows an appropriate structure for the terroir, a little more austere than Les Chiens-Chiens, with more substance and polish, the dark fruits delicately draped...

The wines of this family domaine have been a staple here at K&L since the 1994 vintage when Franck and Betty Millet drove a long way (to Beaune!) on Easter Sunday to meet Clyde and crew to present their wines. We love these wines for their freshness, charm and affordability. The low-alcohol Millet Sancerre Rouge is 100% Pinot Noir, partially barrel aged, and absolutely delicious. Aromas of cherries and purple flowers give way to a vibrant, crunchy red-fruited palate with just a enough tannins to balance out the juicy fruit.

From Ian Cauble, MS: “Grand Mont” is the premier bottle at Domaine du Bel Air, unanimously considered to be the very top producer of the appellation. Sourced from organically farmed, 70+-year-old vines and crafted with the utmost tradition before two judicious years of aging in Bel Air’s underground limestone cellars, “Grand Mont” could easily be mistaken in a blind tasting for classically styled, high-priced benchmarks from Bordeaux or the Loire Valley. The Gauthiers have been crafting wine in the town of Benais for five generations, but the large maj...

Today, Pascal and his wife Dominique farm a total of nine hectares in the department of the Sarthe in the Val du Loir, a tiny, stony hillside along the Loir River (a tributary of the Loire River), north of Vouvray that is also the most northerly - and coldest - of the regions of the Loire.
