Classic Bouzy! Great intensity, ample body and fruit, expansive and just downright delicious with food. Love the weight, this made for an amazing and versatile cheese wine with its richness and fresh acid. Golden fruits, orchard blossoms, bing cherry and red currant, sweet cream, white tea, chalky minerality. 65 PN 35 CH; 9 years on lees; 3/2011 disgorgement; >7g/L dosage — a month ago
Today I picked up this 2018 Domaine Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Rośe. 100% Cabernet Franc and just another reason why I love this grape so much.
The nose has beautiful aromas of red fruit, strawberries, red raspberry, watermelon, orange zest, melon and minerality.
On the palate is a delicious strawberry, tart grapefruit, tart raspberry, red currant, pomegranate, orange peel and a nice mineral note.
This wine is medium bodied very dry with medium + acidity and medium fine tannins that lead into a clean crisp fresh finish. A very pleasing summer drinker. If other 18's from Loire are this good I will be drink my share of Loire Rośes this year. Have a safe weekend enjoying yourselfs. Nostrovia ! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 10 days ago
Easily drinkable. Paired with glazed ham, roasted herbed potatoes, and asparagus. Nice wine. We bought when visiting family. Worth $20 plus a bottle? I have had others for $10 that were just as good but it was a treat from Charlevoix. — 2 months ago

Hard to beat and harder and harder to find these days. As always, great texture and creaminess frames by potent Bouzy fruit and richness. — 2 months ago
