Lovely Chinon. Organic. Fresh creamy nose. Denser. The weight carries through to the flavorful palette. Awesome Cab Franc.

Beautiful biodynamic cab franc. Tried 3 of these chi ins wines all beautiful but this one was the one. Medium bodies, round mouthfeel, so,e essence of the soil and rock from the surrounding river banks and mountains. Very much enjoyed the 2012 and cellared 2 more to be assessed in next 3-5 years if we can hold onto it that long.
