Red wine. Chinon, Loire Valley, France. 100% Cabernet Franc. Organic. "Marc Plouzeau’s Rive Gauche bottling of Chinon is one of his more forward cuvées, as the vineyard is planted on a base of gravel and pebbles along the river. The vines are thirty years of age and, like all of Monsieur Plouzeau’s wines, fermented with indigenous yeasts. The 2019 comes in nicely ripe at 13.5 percent octane and offers up a deep and classic bouquet of black cherries, dark berries, cigar smoke, gravel, a bit of menthol, tree bark and a topnote of juniper berries. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and has excellent depth at the core, with fine soil signature, moderate tannins and a long, complex and very well-balanced finish. This is approachable now, but with the exceptional quality of the 2019 central Loire red wine vintage, this has the depth and stuffing to also age gracefully for the next couple of decades. It’s fine quality augurs very well for some of the other cuvées of Chinon here yet to be released! 2020-2040." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
