L'huisserie Chinon Rouge 2014

Grape Variety: 
100% Cabernet Franc
Tasting Note: 
From one of the most impressive producers of Chinon, Domaine Alliet, the Huisserie vineyard is located uphill, on a premier slope in Cravant-les-CĂ´teaux. The soil is composed of yellow limestone (tuffeau) on the surface and clay and flint below. The grapes ripen perfectly in this south facing vineyard. The nose is full, complex and defining a pure and elegant profile with notes of red berries, light pepper and forest trees. The taste is medium bodied, refreshing and refined with firm tannins. It can be paired with game dishes, beef stew and strong cheeses. This amazing wine could be cellared for more than ten years. However, you can drink it sooner by decanting for 45 minutes before serving.
The total size of the Vineyards is 17 Hectares and this special vineyard is 40 years old 2 hectares which produces 8,000 bottles with Organic viticulture
