Chinon “Cuvee Terroir”


Out of stock

Domaine Gouron, Chinon "Cuvee Terroir", Loire Valley, France 2017
{sustainable} 100% Cabernet Franc

The Gouron family has farmed their estate for five generations in the region of Chinon. The unique gravelly- sloped soils are key to the structure they get from the vines. This cuvée called "Terroir" reflects this gravel and the 50- year old vines planted there. More Pinot Noir-esque in style, the Cabernet Franc here is wide open with a knife edge balance of fruit and acidity from start to finish. Supple and ripe, the finish is pure black tea and red berry fruit. No oak in this cuvée.
Serving Suggestion: A match for seared duck breast with savory thyme and blackberry sauce; or beef tenderloin with sautéed smoked bacon and mushroom topping.
