Beatrice & Pascal Lambert, Les Graves Chinon 2014, Loire, France
Tasting Note: A smooth, everyday Chinon that is slightly ahead of the pack.
Ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of red plum, strawberry and black tea with a smattering of green vegetables.
On the palate the dry cabernet franc is smooth in texture with red fruit showing on the attack supported by a soft, grippy layer of tannin.
