Chinon Rouge Pierre de Tuf 2018 - Domaine de la Noblaie
On limestone soils with a sprinkling of tuff, the 60-year-old vines grow the Cabernet Franc grapes for this Chinon Rouge Pierre de Tuf. The organically grown grapes ferment in a cuvèe carved out of the cellar of tuff from which the wine takes its name. The grapes are poured from baskets into the cuvèe and then the wine is left to age in oak barrels for 14 months until bottling. The resulting fine red Chinon Rouge Pierre de Tuf has a powerful fresh elegance. Aromatic and rich in ripe black fruit and minerals plus a long firm finish. Delicious with red meat, lamb stew, hard salty cheese and with grilled peppers. Serve at 15-16 degrees and long to preserve.
