2017 Domaine de la Noblaie "Les Blancs Manteaux" Chinon

SKU #1425047

94 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "Directly along the slope from the domaine lies this lieu-dit, with thin soils over a deep bed of Turonian limestone. As with Les Chiens-Chiens, this too was bottled in April 2019. The nose carries the memory of the barrels, with scents of cigar box, along with crushed chalk, peony, violets, hawthorn, damson and wild black cherry, fresh and pure. The palate shows an appropriate structure for the terroir, a little more austere than Les Chiens-Chiens, with more substance and polish, the dark fruits delicately draped over a tight frame of ripe, tightly grained tannins. Intertwined tobacco and cigar box, a limestone grip of some weight, and with some finesse. Impressive, with fine potential. Tasted twice, in Angers and at the domaine. 94/100 " (11/2019)

The nose of this wine shows red and dark fruits and lovely dried florals--typical of Chinon's aromatic red wines. On the palate the wine is medium/full bodied, dark and rich showing red and black fruit on the palate as well, but also acomandied by dark savory spice, faint hint of fennel, leather, black currant and dried mint. Pair this wine with slow roasted meats with plenty of roasted garlic and you're all set for a lovely meal.
