Before I get into the deets, this has been a great week for me and Loire wine. These are not modern and not the rustic crunchy wines of old. It seems that quality is starting to spread from the few that have been making epic wines for decades to the younger and new Loire vigneron.
As for this beauty, the color is a dark red core with vibrant purple and red edges.
The nose and palate is pure
#cabernetfranc with deep and fresh red berries, pepper spice, and a mineral core with hints of tobacco and earth. The palate is the real star with sensual and silky ripe tannins. There is no fat, this is fresh and perfectly balanced and only 12.5 abv! Outstanding and only a baby. This is a producer to follow for sure. Thank you for the introduction @Lyle Fass. #chinon #raffault
