Further Details

Medium bodied and fine-tannined, with a fresh, palate-cleansing wash of violet, graphite and dark berries. Fairly austere and savoury, this is a wine that shows best alongside meaty fare.

Chinon is a significant red-wine appellation in the Touraine district of the Loire valley. Its wines are made from Cabernet Franc (often called breton there). From 2000, up to a quarter of the blend may be Cabernet Sauvignon.

Chinon is, according to the Oxford Companion to Wine, "essentially a Frenchman’s wine."

The Best of Wine in Ireland 2008 found Les Galuches "alluring with soft ripe redcurrant fruits [and] drying peppery tannins on the finish - good length too. Gorgeous!"
