Domaine du Colombier Chinon 2010

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from my local supermarket where it was on offer for five pounds.Chinon is an AOC created in 1937 for mainly red and rose wines made from the cabernet franc grape known in this area as petit breton [the rare white Chinon being made from chenin blanc] from around the town of that name.This town,famous for its medieval castle,is located on the north bank of the river Vienne,a tributary of the Loire,about half-way between Saumur and Tours.Domaine du Colombier [www.chinoncolombier.fr ] is a 24 hectare estate that has been in the family of Christine and Oliver Jouvault for severasl generations.I drank my bottle the other evening with my supper of grilled pork and I enjoyed it.It is fairly dry and the tannins are quite noticable but there is plenty of a blackcurrant,cherry or liquorice type fruit there.Overall I would say this is of reasonable quality at a value for money price
