Chinon Cabernet Franc 2017

I always enjoy this wine, and the 2017 is another great vintage. Smells like fresh veggies, herbs, and tart red and black fruit. Great acidity with a spicy, grippy finish. Obviously, this isn’t everyone’s bag, but for fans of this style it’s very good. — 2 days ago

Clos du Chêne Vert Chinon Cabernet Franc 2010

Wow! Thank you Kermit Lynch for the recommendation! Awesome value @ £34.

PnP. Lovely dark red color. Nose has meat, earth, and dark fruit on it. Palate is balanced between raspberry and smoke. Wine has great depth but also wonderful texture. I can’t find anything wrong with this! Excellent producer!

I’ll be buying more!

Tradition Chinon Cabernet Franc 2016

Fruit & acid out front here. Approachable tart cherry juice. Tannins are silky. A new producer for me, and one that I will absolutely be revisiting. Accompanied by the debut album from Jake Xerxes Fussell. A great collection of Southern American folk songs. Fussell has a new album coming out in June and is an immensely talented storyteller & songwriter. — 20 days ago

Coteau de Noiré Chinon Cabernet Franc 2015

16.5/20 (91/100) Вариант шинона с частичной выдержкой в новом дубе. Аромат спелых ягод черешни, черники, шоколада и нотой ментола. Довольно тельное с высокой кислотностью и достаточно интенсивными, но мягкими по текстуре танинами. Шоколадно-ягодное во вкусе. Хорошо интегрированный дуб, неплохой баланс с фруктовыми ароматами. Не великое вино, но лучше многих других шинонов. — 15 days ago

Les Picasses Chinon Cabernet Franc 2014

If you need a change of pace from primary fruit wines, Olga💥 smacks you in the nose w/ bell pepper, basil, and just ripe cherries. So silky too. — 13 days ago

@Matt Perlman it brings the thunder! Reliably graceful every vintage. I had the ‘09 and ‘11 recently and it’s a good stable mate to those. I’m tempted to pick up some of those aged bottles that’s are still around on retail.

Chinon Soif de Tendresse Cabernet Franc

Candy-like quality at first, followed by nice plum flavors and modest tannins. Versatile wine that would be good with a lot of goods or with appetizers. — 11 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Chinon Cabernet Franc 2010

16.5/20 (90/100) Аромат сухих чёрных ягод с нотами мха и белого перца. Умеренная тельность, высокая кислотность, умеренной интенсивности танины шелковистой текстуры. Красивое, но не слишком комплексное вино. — 15 days ago

Chinon Vieilles Vignes Cabernet Franc 2011

16.5/20 (91/100) Вино для любителей выдержанных вин. Букет ароматов развитой, много третички: кожа, бальзамик, землистые тона, сушеные чёрные ягоды. Высокая кислотность, довольно интенсивные, чуть суховатые танины. Приятное и элегантное вино. Пить сейчас, держать смысла нет. — 15 days ago
