Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator

The Foucault brothers took over their family’s estate in 1969 and continue to produce legendary cabernet franc. They farm organically and make their wines without adding yeast, without racking, fining or filtering. Their 2008 shows fine evolution, its rooty, rich flavors seemingly ready to drink when first poured, then gaining freshness over the course of a day. The wine’s silken texture and bright red fruit suggest there’s further evolution to come. Or decant it now for duck over farro and red cabbage.

Clos Rougeard, France
This cult estate has been in the family for several generations. The Foucault brothers (Nadi and Charlie) tend exceptional vineyards, harvest at small yields, vinify in barrel, let the wines bubble for a couple of years in a glacially cold cellar and bottle without filtration. And what you get is the some of the top red wines of the Loire Valley and in the very top of France as a whole. Charles Joguet, the great winemaker of Chinon, once said: “there are two suns. One shines outside for everybody. The second shines in the Foucaults’ cellar.” The rare Chenin Blanc from their vineyards - sometimes sec, demi-sec or even moelleux - has been described by Michel Bettane as “the quintessence of Chenin”. Bettane has tasted the 1921 and listed it as one of the most memorable wines of his life. After the death of Charlie Foucault in 2015, the estate was briefly ran by Nady Foucault and his nephew Antoine (who also produces the excellent Domaine du Collier wines). In 2017, Nady chose to sell the estate to Martin Bouyges, owner of many French wineries, most notably Château Montrose in Bordeaux. Under the direction of Jacques-Antoine Toublanc, the new ownership has vowed to keep things exactly the same in the vines and the cellar.

Cabernet Franc, a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon, is the subtler and more delicate of the Cabernets. Today Cabernet Franc produces outstanding single varietal wines across the wine-producing world. Somm Secret—One of California's best-kept secrets is the Happy Canyon appellation of Santa Barbara. Here Cabernet Franc shines as a single varietal wine or in blends, expressing sumptuous fruit, savory aromas and polished tannins.
