Pure Chinon. Musty. Olive. Pretty acidity. Cut grass. Brings us back to Spring in the Loire!

An excellent find. Great with food or by itself.

Nice classic chinon. One the nose slight cracked pepper, back cherries and forest floor. In the mouth, dark fruits and tobacco, an almost Pinot Noir-like mouthfeel and structure and a medium-short finish.
