Tasting Notes

The 2021 Chinon is a little reductive at this very early stage, so give it a swirl. This is a lightly spiced, red fruited and floral Chinon. Light in body, it's for early drinking and has a sense of firmness on the finish. This is a much more classic expression of Chinon – 2020 was an explosion of seductive, ripe fruit, while this is more like a dart in its shape. It's an early drinking style, that needs some time to settle, more than the 2020 did due to its more austere classicism. Fermented in concrete.
