Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon, 2013

Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon, 2013

We like Chinon. The Cabernet-Franc wine that is. We can’t afford Chinon. The wine or the ticket to France. So we buy cab franc from South American and other new world growers. The Raffault is a base model or entry level sipper that makes a lovely late in the day red for lighter fare and just plain enjoyment. It doesn’t have the power of better bottles, nor the heft, but it still evokes that musty, barnyard, smoky, berry, leathery flavour of CF. Readily available in BC at $22, a great intro for those unaccustomed to masculine reds.

 

Price: $22 at BCL.

 

Market Liquidity: Good value. What else is there to say?
