Clos Rougeard, Saumur-Champigny, Les Bourg 2011

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Foucault brothers Nady and Charlie are the owners of Clos Rougeard, and in France, at least, their wines have certainly achieved cult-like status with every three-star restaurant in Paris hustling to get a small allocation. Not surprisingly, hardly anyone in America has even heard of Clos Rougeard. Well, we're here to change all that. This estate has been in the family for several generations. The Foucault brothers tend exceptional vineyards, harvest at small yields, vinify in barrel, let the wines age for a couple of years in a frigid cellar and bottle without filtration. The result (even in "challenging" years) is a few of the top red wines of the Loire Valley. 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." 100% Cabernet Franc and designed for all manner of food. Writing for, Joel B. Payne says: "If there is a producer on the Loire that has reached almost mythic proportions, it is certainly Charlie and Nady Foucault at Clos Rougeard. They have no website, no e-mail, and there is not even a name on the mailbox outside their always locked gate, but they can boast a fan club as dedicated to their estate as that of Manchester United."
