Domaine Wilfrid Rousse Chinon ‘Clos de la Roche’Regular price €30.00
This is a richly coloured, organic Cabernet Franc that perfectly expresses its origins in time and place. It's generous and supple, with evocative red fruit aromas and great length.
While a wine of this calibre is welcome at any time of year, the Rousses think that it's a perfect choice for the end of the year as a match for rich winter dishes, especially game and traditional country fare.
The ‘Clos de la Roche’ is a two hectare parcel of south-facing seventy year old vines, still surrounded in places by its original stone walls
Chinon is, according to the Oxford Companion to Wine, "essentially a Frenchman’s wine."
