This is such a juicy, inviting delight. It has wonderfully primary floral notes, and Cabernet Franc’s structured freshness. Zappy and delicious, and brilliant if served a little chilled.
The 2021 La Temps des Cerises is a bright, fun, juicy Cabernet Franc that always pleases. You can expect sweet raspberry fruit, violets as well as a touch of reduction, but this was not yet released when tasted. The 2021 wasn't as generous as previous warmer vintages. It's light bodied, crisp and has minimal tannins making for a refreshing red that is perfect for drinking young. Serve chilled.
“In his own words, Jérôme Billard looks for a style of chinon that is correct, ripe and not vegetal but not too tannic. My own experience with the wines suggests this is achieved in spades.”
