In my laziness, this Jill's write up from her website:
This version of the grape is classic Loire style, though made by a slightly rogue 24-year-old winemaker, Jerome Billard. This is a lighter bodied style wine but with aromas and flavors in spades. Lots of cloves and all-spice, and black raspberries and some smokiness to it. Jerome worked in California at Dominus and at Petrus in Bordeaux before heading to the Loire Valley, where he is making waves with his Chinon. This drinks great now but look out, it will age for some time as its filled with bright acidity. Oh, and did we mention that this comes from old vines Cab Franc? Some as old as 80 years.
