Brand new in our book: Chinon “Les Galuches” 2016 by Wilfrid Rousse.
This is an exemplary Chinon, with brilliant bluish-red colour and typical Cabernet Franc nose of cedar and currant leaf, with supple redcurrant fruit and gentle grip in the finish.
Wilfrid Rousse has 18 hectares of Cabernet Franc, across a wide range of soils. Having completed three years in conversion the wines since 2011 are certified organic. Les Galuches is from young vines grown on sand and gravel lying near to the river Vienne.
