Le Paradis Chinon is an easy drinking crowd pleaser, brimming with fresh berries and red fruit. This Cabernet Franc is a steal! This wine pops with expressive notes of pepper, violets, incense and wet leaves. Great complexity at a value! Soft, fine tannin makes this an approachable, food friendly wine able to pair with almost anything.

Bright, fragrant, and easygoing with an herbaceous kick, Le Paradis Chinon has with all my favorite qualities of Cabernet Franc at a bargain price. Violet floral nose with plenty of forest floor notes, the 2015 is earthy through the palate with soft raspberry and plum fruit and just enough pepper and lift – an expressive weeknight winner from Loire.

This is 100% Cabernet Franc from the heart of the Loire Valley. This is always the perfect house red to keep around. The 'Le Paradis' is fresh and bright with notes of raspberry, plum, violets, black pepper and fresh crushed herbs like thyme and sage. Pair this with everything from salads, to steak.

Additional Information:


Cabernet Franc

- While Cabernet Franc, a parent with Sauvignon Blanc to the ubiquitous Cabernet Sauvignon, frequently plays second fiddle in Bordeaux blends (though it does get more props on the Right Bank, where it dominates Cheval Blanc), this lighter, higher acid/lower tannin, early-maturing, perfumed red varietal is far from a wallflower. It is the headliner in the Loire Valley appellations of Saumur-Champigny, Bourgueil, St-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil, Chinon and Anjou-Villages, where it makes exceptional, food-friendly wines. Outside of France, Cabernet Franc can be found in northern Italy, particularly in Friuli and in California where it is frequently used as a blending grape in Bordeaux-style wines. Heartier in the cold than Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc is gaining a foothold in northern and eastern wine regions like Canada, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- Of all of the French wine producing regions, the Loire might produces the greatest variety of wines. They range from still to sparkling, very dry and acidic to hearty sweet, and clear in color to a deep purple. The diversity of wine produced in this region is due in part to its dynamic climate, which ranges from Continental to Mediterranean. This region is best known for Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc and Cabernet Franc. The most famous areas in the Loire Valley may be Sancerre and Vouvray.
