Le Pré Vaujour

Chinon Cabernet Franc 2016

I’ve been anticipating my first #chinon taste. This wine started out tight - right after pouring you get a pronounced meaty nose which opens up to floral and subtle vegetal notes and laid back dark fruit. Plenty of acidity on the palate, reserved red fruit, leather, dried violets finishing with structured tannins. Fantastic wine to have with food, but also delicious by itself. — 4 years ago

Les Chanteaux Chinon Chenin Blanc 2018

Captivating #chinon #cheninblanc - green apple, fresh herbs, rounded honey notes. QPR not that high up there for $30 but a lovely wine. — a year ago

Domaine Bernard Baudry

Le Domaine Chinon Cabernet Franc 2019

Fantastic, classic #chinon - savory, subtle crushed black/blue fruit compote nose, characteristic #cabernetfranc green pepper and violet notes. Gushing acidity on palate, touch of cocoa, velvety tannins. This may be one of the most verstatile food pairing wines but just as enjoyable as a night cap. — 3 years ago

Domaine Fabrice Gasnier

Le coteau de Sonnay Chinon Chenin Blanc 2012

Why you don’t even bother opening Chinon Blanc until it’s had a few years in the bottle. What was simple, raw and mean in its youth is now becoming a fresh, focused and pure expression of bone dry Chenin. Fantastic. #gasnier #cheninblanc #chinon — 6 years ago
