Chinon Selection Pierre Chainier (6 Bottle Case)

Tax included.

Formed in 1973, Pierre Chainier is both a négociant and the owner of some 250 hectares of vines in the heart of Touraine from which it sources classic Loire varieties. Its eight Touraine estates include Domaine de la Bruyère in the newly established appellation of Touraine-Chenonceaux. Conversely, Clos de Nouys, its 25 acre Vouvray estate, is one of the oldest in the appellation. Here, vines average 35 years of age in vineyards that were already listed amongst the best sites on geological maps dating from 1907.

Chinon, Sélection Pierre Chainier wine is an approachable, lively Cabernet Franc from the heart of the Loire. Traditional maceration and fermentation with the wine being racked off before undergoing malolactic fermentation. A combination of stainless steel and coated concrete tanks are used to preserve the bright, fresh fruit characteristics. This wine has lively blackcurrant and pepper notes on the nose that are joined by fresh blackcurrant, crunchy redcurrant and pleasing capsicum flavours. Medium bodied and very drinkable. A very versatile and food friendly wine, so forget the usual red meat suspects. Try with chicken, baked herb crusted salmon or a variety of roasted vegetables.

Please note: All case wine orders can take between 7-10 days for delivery.
