  • Nice easy Chinon. Vanilla nose. Simple soft Cab Franc palate. Not amazing but I would happily drink as an everyday or restaurant wine that won't break the bank.

  • Honest and simple table wine, fairly juicy and ripe, but clearly has that old world Cab Franc character. Lacks depth through the mid-palate, so it comes across as quite light. I think it could have used a touch more acidity as well, but I still found it quite enjoyable.

  • Aromatic, spicy, a little green with herbal, some integrated vegetal; med body, structured but approachable, juicy black fruit, short finish. This is excellent value and a cab franc that showed old world character. I would buy at $15. 89

  • What a delightful treat this value of a Chinon is! I struggle with most inexpensive Loire Cab Franc because I seem to be fairly sensitive to the green (pyrazine) notes that are commonly very strong. There is a little bit of green pepper here, but the greenness comes across as more herbal than anything, kind of like mint and tarragon. Along with the herbal notes there is some tobacco leaf, plenty of bright, crunchy red fruit, pencil shaving, and subtle black pepper. The palate has refreshing acidity (med+/high) and a little bit of silky tannin holding everything together. There could be a touch more concentration and length, but for the price I really cannot complain.

  • Drank with mooseburger. Nice wine, a bit tannic at first but quite soon very drinkable in a somewhat weak but balanced style. Charming and clunkable. Very good for the price!
