Finally, an approachable style of Chinon with spicy fruit and dried herbaceous notes. Slightly riper vintage shows...

Dark-opaque ruby in colour with a touch of purple, the 2009 Chinon offers rather brooding (albeit slightly vegetal)...

This Cabernet Franc was a medium ruby red in colour. The nose consisted of cherry and blackcurrant, along with vanilla and a smokiness. Medium strength tannins and body. Flavours consisted of what was found on the nose, although slightly less intense. Good, velvety finish.
Tasted March 2012.
