Re: What would your classification of Loire reds be?

Thanks all for the comments everyone really helpful. Now, I know why the wine buyer keep mentioning that I should try it before I cellar it. Maybe the carignane wasn’t pyrazine, it did have a overwhelming twist at the end that was bitter. (2018 Vinca minor Mendocino). Thanks for the tip on one to tr...

2018 Baudry Grezeaux - is green pepper notes (pyrazine) a feature of most Loire Cabernet Franc’s? I don’t recall the strong bell pepper notes in a Chimney Rock CF - perhaps the difference between new and old world. Does the green pepper note dissipate with years of cellaring?

Doubleback can’t be it since they had some scores in the 80’s. It’s so odd in the same year 2014, RP gave it a 97 and WS 89. Same thing by Decanter 2015 gave it a 83 then in 2016 95. Mostly 91-93 with some outliers in the 80’s and high 90s.

The good thing is that most of Wb’s have fully stocked cellars and can continue to support our favorite CA and OR (and WA and other states =) to help them through the gap - with their 2017-2019 sales. Definitely different if wines didn’t take so long to create.
