Leafy green herbs, bell pepper, tart raspberry and green tobacco. Wet stone minerality. A bit over extracted but a decent representation nonetheless.

This was quite good. Not as tannic as expected for 100% Cabernet franc.

Blackcurrant and game on the nose. Rosé-like in the mouth, light bodied and raspberries. Hugely drinkable but needs more grip. Drink now.

Nice Chinon for the price. Earth dominated this one. Maybe another couple of years?

Solid expression of Cab Franc, but doesn't exceed expectations. Crunchy veggie, tart red fruit, hard stone minerality. Definitely quaffable.

Very accessible Chinon. Pretty, juicy raspberries and menthol. Not the greatest Chinon, but good for $.

Untouchable. Not so much fruit, more mineral and herbaceous! Would drink again.

Meh. Just wine. Missing a lot of aromatics and mid palate.
