Marc Piouzeau, Château Bonneliere Chinon Les Cornuelles 2015
A smokin’ value for lovers of Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Chateau de La Bonneliere Chinon Les Cornuelles comes from limestone soils and 50+-year-old vines. It offers a pretty, floral bouquet of sweet red and black fruits, lots of limestone-like minerality, medium-bodied richness and depth, and fine, polished tannin. I love its purity of fruit and while it leans towards the light, elegant end of the spectrum, it has outstanding length and is pure class. Drink bottle anytime over the coming 7-8 years.
