2018 Chinon Pierre de Tuf, Domaine de la Noblaie, Jérôme Billard
This is made from two parcels, both planted in the 1940s. Jérôme uses the fifteenth-century tuffeau cuve in the old cellar to do a long, slow fermentation to bring out some delicious complexity in this Cabernet Franc. This has a subtle, sophisticated nose, and the palate is fine and enticing. Supple tannins, a juicy red fruit core, and a long flow with a mineral finish. With its precise fruit and gentle toast of oak, this feels almost Burgundian.
