uDomaine Daniel Chauveau, Chinon, Loire Valley, 2005.
We drank this at lunch at the winery last weekend and it was super delicious. Really fresh but had great density and there was nothing green peppery about it like I find in so many under ripe Cabernet Francs form the Loire Valley. The finish was long and with dark berries and solid tannins. It just made me happy.
Now you can only order this at the San Francisco Wine Trading Co. for $21.99, I don't think its available anywhere retail here in LA. Sorry! But I still had to write about it because I thought the wine was really terrific for the price.
