Fabrice Gasnier Chinon Vieilles Vignes
Immediately obvious is the depth of the staining on the cork. This is a concentrated, rich but elegant expression of Cabernet Franc from 50 year old vines – and it’s less than 13% ABV. The berries are macerated for 30 days and spend 6 months in old barrels. The result is a simply gorgeous, balanced wine with defined red and black fruit aromas and the complexity of violets, sweet spice and licorice. An elegant, classy wine, wonderful to enjoy now or in many years to come – with a finish as long as the Loire itself.
