2009 Jean-Maurice Raffault Les Galuches Chinon

  This Young Cabernet Franc from The Loire Valley in France has a bouquet of vanilla custard, violets, lavender, musk with hints of green pepper and barnyard.  The wine overall is not too balanced and has semi rigged tannin that for whatever reason sits on the bottom of the mouth and gums rather than the top, but in the the mid palate there arises nice notes of toasted oak, mulberry and baked cherries.

Not overly enthused with this wine but feel with a couple more years of aging and paired with the right meal, this wine may be something down the line.     Keep Believing and Keep Drinking.
