This wine was the steal of the year. Please find me another case. Cab Francs are often difficult and often undrinkable.This little beauty is a refined mouthful. Classic, restrained, full of a correct cab franc that drinks so well now that it is hard to wait the few years for this wine to truly shine. Can't wait for more!

Liked second bottle more .... separated by 9 months. Good Gamay .... maybe looking for a bit more heft, but it is a Chinon.
