From the cellar: The 2017 can be found around town, so I’m guessing we’ve had this kicking around for a couple of years.
Surprisingly, there aren’t a lot of posts for Chinon on the blog. Not sure why, we gravitate towards the leather, gamey top notes of a decent Cab Franc, and this doesn’t disappoint. A very juicy, black currant and lightly aromatic spice on the finish. Crazy tannins considering the lie down. Lovely with food, perfect with food, a little “loose” on the palate as a sipper.
Price: Not sure when, but whatever date we bought it, low 20s before tax.
Market Liquidity: One of those wines unlikely to get high points but highly likely to satisfy.
