Domaine Gouron Chinon 2009 Wine Review (NW)
Fragrant raspberry on the nose
Medium bodied on the palate
Plum and flint notes on the finish
Chinon is a town and surrounding wine appellation in France that produces terrific Cabernet Franc. This wine from Domaine Gouron shows the textbook red fruit and flinty characteristics that represent this region. It's a good buy for around $18 or so.
The wines of Chinon are remarkably balanced and elegant, so don't overlook them. Raise a glass!
