Solid Chinon rouge to go with our steaks. Balanced and fresh, enough acid to cut the fat.

Do this wine some justice & enjoy it with food! On it's own: all stemmy underripe blackberry, almost rotting green bell pepper & potting soil. Paired with nori: fruit shines brighter, more ripe, & the wine turns satiny on the palate. A beautiful wine, in context.
