One of the first wines we imported into the UK and still one of our favourites. Cabernet Franc at its best in the hands of the Page family who have been farming these old vines for many generations. In our view the best the region has to offer. The local soil provides fruit and elegance while 75 year old vines provide concentration and depth. Organic farming methods, long maceration and one whole year in tank before bottling. No oak.

In the glass

Deep ruby colour with an expressive, violet, prune and black cherry nose. Powerful concentration of red wild berries and fresh walnuts on the palate. Elegant and smooth finish with more of those ripe red fruits.

Delicious Chinon

I think this is absolutely delicious! Ever since first my trips to France tasting wine, I've enjoyed Loire wines for their wide variety. This is a delicious example, without being too heavy.

Wine At Home

I can't tell you how happy that makes us! We've worked with this vineyard over 3 generations and it was one of the first wines we ever brought over to the UK. Huge fans of Cab Franc - always think it's an underrated grape! Thank you so much for leaving such a lovely review!

Loire cabernet franc - another delight

This Chinon is a delicious light red wine, versatile with food and a delight to drink. Perfect for bbq's and sharing with friends. The only reason it is 4* rather than 5* is that it has stiff competition from another cabernet franc from the Loire that Wine at Home also sell! Honestly it is really hard sometimes trying to pick from so many delicious wines!

Wine At Home

Thank you for your lovely review! Cabernet Franc from its spiritual (and actual home) is such an underrated grape - and we love the lightness and fruitiness of this Loire classic. Brilliant for summer drinking and works well lightly chilled!
