2019 Domaine de la Noblaie "Le Temps des Cerises" Chinon

SKU #1513965 90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Le Temps des Cerises (or "Cherry Time!" as Jérôme jokes) is Domaine de la Noblaie’s everyday Chinon and represents half of their Cabernet Franc production. Bright ruby. Classic fresh and savory Chinon nose, delivering lots of black pepper, tomato and olive. On the palate, thought, it’s plush and fruity, with fleshy plum and ripe cherry, balanced by chalk and more black pepper. Aged five months in stainless steel. (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

K&L Notes

92-94 Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "Jérôme’s entry-level red cuvée comes from the majority of the vines on the domaine, and as is the norm in recent vintages it is beautifully expressive, explosive in fact, with black cherries and violets, the aromatic profile so fragrant and complex. The palate is no less enticing, polished with a lightly grained structure, accessible but correctly composed. It has a lovely grip, and a stylish focus running into the finish. A delicious substance, beautifully composed, and more reminiscent of the 2017 style than 2018, focused with a tighter style. 92-94/100" (02/2020) (ECOCERT Certified Organic)

Winemaker Jerome Billard jokingly refers to the Temps des Cerises as "Cherry Time!" The name loosely translates to the time of cherries and the wine itself has no shortage of cherry fruit. Mostly, the wine is as exuberant as Jerome. It is loaded with red fruit flavors, gorgeous lavender and violet aromas and lovely thyme notes. It is an explosion of character that evokes a springtime stroll all in your glass. And who couldn't use an unfettered walk through a park right about now? Enjoy now and for several more springs if you want to take your time...
