Description • This is an absolutely lovely wine that’s a true gem. Light- to medium-bodied, this is an elegant, lively wine that has the distinctive raspberry flavor of Chinon’s reds along with fresh leafy aromatics. It’s incredibly well-balanced, with a silky texture and a refreshing acidity that makes you want to take another sip. An easy-to-drink, versatile red, it can be enjoyed as an aperitif wine or with a wide range of dishes.
