Le Pré Vaujour, Chinon 2016, Loire, France

Tasting Note: A cabernet franc made in the classic Chinon style.

Medium-intensity ruby in color this wine has an aromatic nose of red plum, violet, blossom, pencil shavings and black tea.

On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied cabernet franc reveals restrained red fruit, supported by medium-plus acidity and smooth, ripe, medium-tannin.

The wine is in balance with fruit well complimented by a tannin structure that does not overwhelm.

A versatile wine that could accommodate many a meal which is why it’s always found on bistro menus in France.
