Vintage 2017 | Very lean and elegant wine. Drinks very easy, no frayed edges, supple and friendly. Very curious how this wine will develop. | Paired with veal meat

Vegetal, green peppers and tomatoes, beefy tannins while still maintaining acidity and fruit :)

Light, easy drinking. First Chinon I’ve tasted. Not much structure to it.

Blackberry, strawberry, green tobacco, and cracked white pepper notes. Classic Chinon. Huge QPR.

Nose of smoke, strawberry, very appealing. The palate is mostly red fruits and an acid backbone. The tannins are just there to add a kick to the wine before the finish that doesn't last that long. Very pleasing and pleasant
