This exquisite Chinon is made from the oldest vines of the Domaine – averaging 60 years. It is a blend from varying plots of gravel and sandy soil vineyards in the small village of Cravant-Les-Côteaux by the Vienne River.
The wine develops very well on the nose with notes of blackcurrant, red fruits, a subtle saltiness and some earthy flavours. The taste is complex; firm tannins, dark fruits and duration on the palate.
It pairs well with a braised beef dish, white meats or a platter of charcuterie. It is ready to drink if decanted for 30 minutes before service and could age another five to seven years. 100% Cabernet Franc. - Importer Note
