Domaine Wilfrid Rousse Chinon 'Les Puys'Regular price €24.00
Trying something just a little different means that you can get to know wines of the quality and substance of Les Puys, an organic Cabernet Franc from the Loire that makes a magnificent dinner wine.
Structured and serious, with dusty tannins, fresh acidity, and an intriguing flavour profile of cedar, blackcurrant and tobacco, Les Puys is a wine of surprising depth and complexity: not too full-bodied, and all the better as a food wine for it.
Match this organic Cabernet Franc's juicy attack with strong cheeses, grilled lamb cutlets, sirloin steak, or roasted vegetables.
Chinon is a significant red-wine appellation in the Touraine district of the Loire valley where 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."
