Philippe Alliet Chinon
Beautifully composed Cabernet Franc of imposing structure in spite of its 12.5%. Its intensity is already evident in the purplish, almost black colour. Ripe red fruit, floral notes, cedar, pencil lead, something animal: not only is there plenty of substance, but complexity too with great purity. Lively, with firm tannins and a long, tight mineral finale with fluidity and roundness on the palate. A grand Chinon. Decant or cellar for 6 to 8 years.
