Not a bad Whole Foods buy. I’m admittedly not generally a Cab F fan but here’s the thing I love about French wines: they tastes how their AOC sounds. Chinon sounds silky and and a bit flirty but with a tiny bit of a cold shoulder. French model who has seen it all. It has silk and berries and sashays past you smelling decadent but you talk to them and they answer you in curt single syllable words, but you don’t mind since, well, this is Chinon. It hints a glamour and depth and enfolds into that not-rude-but-not-warm green-ness. It is pretty (in my experience thus far) typical Chinon.

Deep color, med bodied, raspberry, iron, pencil shavings and nice acid. Great with some simply prepared chicken.
