Domaine de la Noblaie Les Chiens-Chiens Chinon 2004

September 27, 2007

la Noblaie ~$14US 100% Cabernet Franc

This medium ruby Chinon delivers a crazy nose of grilled asparagus, jalapenos peppers, and some black cherries deep in the background. Great balance of acidity and medium tanins makes this an killer food wine; we really enjoyed it with calzones (a proscuitto+pineapple and a meatball). This wine is a “Vegetable Bomb”. New World Fruitbombers  beware; you are probably not going to love this, but you should try it to see what the other side of the world looks like.

Stylish, and great with food, especially vegetables.
