I was lost with this CabFranc. Love Loire juice but this was shaken and stirred. Was in a weird place.

Stunning gorgeous harmonious Cab Franc. This wine is not available in the US. A friend hand carried this back from France. Very small production. Ready to go now with a double decant.

Leather saddle dust from the attic. Barnyard floor, licorice and tar. Intense beams of violet, black raspberry and cacao powder. Pinot-Noir like in its focus and finesse. Not much green character to be found here at this point. Limestone terroir speaks powerfully in the glass. Outstanding Chinon.
