2019 Chinon Le Temps des Cerises, Domaine de la Noblaie, Jérôme Billard

This juicy, fruity style of Chinon has a vibrant violet aroma, with notes of sour cherry and graphite. Its leafy lift is typical of Cabernet Franc, as is the freshness of the palate. This is a zappy fresh red, perfect enjoyed a little chilled.

2019 Chinon Le Temps des Cerises, Domaine de la Noblaie, Jérôme Billard
Domaine de la Noblaie

Jérôme Billard is a name to watch in Chinon, and his wines are some of the most impressive we’ve tasted recently. Although his domaine has a long history (it may once have been the property of the Knights Templar), the vineyards were abandoned until Jérôme’s grandfather acquired them in 1952. It’s under Jérôme, who studied in Dijon and has worked for the Moueix family at both Pétrus and Dominus, that it’s come to prominence. He combines the best of traditional and modern techniques (including a remarkable 15th century fermentation vat) to produce Chinon that has pure fruit and good ageing potential.
