Chateau du Petit Thouars Vinous

Posted on Posted in Petit Thouars, Wine Press

2019 Château du Petit Thouars Chinon Les Georges
The 2019 Chinon Les Georges is a savory Cabernet Franc with masses of spice and smoky nuances alongside violets and red fruit. Savory and serious Old World tannins offer a chalky grip on the sappy, fresh finish. Drink now with food or over the medium term.

2018 Château du Petit Thouars Chinon L’Épée
The 2018 Chinon L’Épée is a seductive, full-bodied Loire Cabernet Franc with no edges. The ripe style (14.5% alcohol) speaks of the warm vintage, yet it remains balanced, retaining a fresh and lightly spiced, lengthy finish. Hailing from old vines planted on clay-limestone, this delivers plentiful concentration, and an abundance of chalky tannins suggest that there’s more to come.
