2017 Chinon Rouge, Domaine de la Semellerie

Bright, fresh and varietal, this red from Domaine de la Semellerie can't fail to entice. Expect aromas of red berries, flowers and pencil shavings. Winemaker/proprietor Fabrice Delalande assembles a blend of fruit from parcels on low-lying clay soils and limestone soils on a southeast-facing slope: the former terroir contributes structure – although this remains light-bodied – while the latter accounts for those fabulous aromatics.
