Cranberry. Earth. Fresh and wonderful. Tannic to the medium... Fragrant and the perfect every day wine for those who give a shit.

Earthy and tart. Nice with braised beef. More Loire value.

Enjoyed this fruit foward ready to consume 2018 Chinon. Not 1 to put away in the cellar. No real green revealed, but a real palate pleaser show.
