2015 Domaine Les Chesnaies Terrasses
Here only Cabernet Franc is used for the red and Chenin Blanc for the rare white “Chinon”. Special care is taken to ensure each wine reflects its terroir. Different types of Chinon are made here. Gravels and sandy soil produces young and fruity wines while chalky/clay soil on the hillside produces wines with more structure and minerality. Structured, tannic and age-worthy wines are made from the chalky plateau. A very impressive “simple” wine. Dark fruits on the nose, sappy with a mouthwatering acidity. Very good value for a great Chinon.
