Domaine Jaulin-Plaisantin, L’Enfer Chinon 2014, Loire, France
Tasting Note: A classic Chinon that combines earth and red fruit in your glass.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of red plum, black tea, pencil shavings, forest floor, vegetable, graphite and white blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied cabernet franc delivers flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity, and ripe, medium-plus tannin.
The wine has midpalate complexity and a tart, red-fruit infused, medium-plus finish.
