Chateau du Petit Thouars Les Georges Chinon Rouge 2019
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Chinon|
|Brand||Chateau du Petit Thouars|
Located in the vicinity of Bourgueil, Chinon and Saumur, near the western border of the Touraine appellation, the award-winning Château du Petit Thouars vineyard is planted in Saint-Germain-Sur-Vienne, on a clay and limestone plateau. This combination is ideal for the Cabernet Franc variety which defines the wines from the Chinon area. Also known under the name “Briton”, this variety produces thin-musked, blue-shaded black berries. Ripe grapes will give wines developing intense red fruit aromas. ( inquire about 2018 vintage 11/26)
The 2019 Chinon Les Georges is a savory Cabernet Franc with masses of spice and smoky nuances alongside violets and red fruit. Savory and serious Old World tannins offer a chalky grip on the sappy, fresh finish. Drink now with food or over the medium term.
