2017 Domaine de la Noblaie "Les Chiens-Chiens" Chinon

SKU #1400251

93 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "From the kaolin clay terroir on the slopes above the domaine, this cuvée was bottled in April 2019. Aromatically it opens with the scents of black olives, dark cherries and blackcurrant, sweet and perfumed. This confidence comes through on the palate, albeit with a pencil-fine definition to the wine's admirable substance, in a very pure style, with notes of acacia, hawthorn and dark, floral hedgerow fruits. There are little notes of cigar box and pencil shaving, and underneath there lies a fine backbone of chalky and minerally tannins. Charming, pure, bright, quite cool and refined, with nice acidity too. Structured and cellar-worthy with a ripe tannic grip. Tasted twice, in Angers and at the domaine. 93/100" (11/2019)

Bay leaf, Jalapeno on the nose, sweet cherries on the palate and pleasantly super earthy. Has real depth and character, great texture and it is fresh and bright.

Picture perfect Cabernet Franc from the Loire Valley! Very pretty lifted aromatics that exudes violets, cassis, thyme along with crushed stones and a touch of pencil shavings. The palate follows with medium-body and very silky tannins. All that translates to perfect wine to pair with a great assortment of cuisines, spicy dishes, light meat, grilled tuna or salmon. Enjoy!

This medium bodied wine is delicious. All crunchy red fruit, stoney minerality and dried florals on the nose. Perhaps a red wine that you could chill on a warm evening, but definitely a great paring with mushrooms, grilled meats, and just about anything with garlic.
