Here's a Chinon that combines perfectly freshness and the frame of a great wine. Harvested by hand, vinified with great care, it reproduces well the clay and limestone soil.

Wine AdvocateFrom a 2.5-hectare parcel with silty soils, the purple-colored 2014 Chinon Rive Gauche Les Lisons offers a concentrated nose of ripe cherries, dark berries, game and some vegetal aromas like green asparagus, truffles, pepper and humid wood. Medium to full-bodied, round and pretty intense, this is an intense and powerful Cabernet Franc with fine tannins along with a juicy, well-concentrated and persistent finish. The tannins are still a bit present, but the wine has a good aging potential. This is a pretty Burgundian Chinon based on elegance, finesse and a delicate fruit.
