Chateau de Coulaine Chinon 2015


Happily, producers such as Punt Road in the Yarra Valley are starting to produce delicious medium bodied cabernet franc styles without too much oak in the style of Chinon in the Loire Valley in France.  Both Chinon and these new wave Australian styles are still not easy however to find on Australian shores.  I spotted this Chinon wine locally from organic producer Chateau de Coulaine and it's a delicious one.  All chalk, medium bodied and fresh finishing, it does what Chinon does well, namely providing for thirsty drinking.  (Region: Chinon, Loire Valley, France, Rating: Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting? Yes, Drink: now to 2022, Tasted: April, 2017)
