Chateau du Petit Thouars Les Georges Chinon Rouge 2016
The friendliest of the estate's three red-wine offerings, "Les Georges" is produced entirely from the free-run juice of Cabernet Franc, and is vinified and aged in steel tank. Far from a simple gulper, however, "Les Georges" is classic Chinon in its marriage of vibrant fruit, honest tannins, and refreshing earth-mineral interplay. The extraction is beautifully judged, and the gentle structure and perky acidity operate in happy unison to create an overall impression of drive and freshness. It's a real lip-smacker, with plenty of lovely spice and fruits that lean toward the red end of the spectrum.
