Philippe Alliet Chinon Cabernet Franc 2015

9.18 ratings on Delectable
$19.99

Alliet makes delicious Cabernet Franc in a way that is respectful of local terroir but seeks a little more ripeness and structure than is common in the area. The result is something a little more Bordelais in style, and indeed it is the great Bordeaux that inspired Philippe.

Where the funk and rubber meet the road. Medium body. Super ripe tannins, good acidity, strong minerality, and bouquet of red fruits. Beautiful, complex cab franc.

Would love to taste test next to a FLX Cabernet Franc. Delicious. Very tannic, great buzz factor on the palate.

Is it me or is this overly oaked? Has good underlying flavors but seems out of balance. Can't see this aging as well as many other fine chinon's from Loire.
