Food Pairings for Philippe Alliet Chinon
Philippe Alliet is the proprietor of this small domaine in Cravant-les-Côteaux, location of some of the best Cabernet Franc vineyards in the Loire Valley. Considered by many to be on of the finest producers in Chinon, Alliet is part of a new generation of Loire winemakers dedicated to low yields, optimally ripe fruit, and fastidious vineyard management. For all his cuvées, the grapes are totally de-stemmed in an effort to reduce the vegetal characteristics often associated with Loire Valley reds. The entry-level Chinon from Philippe Alliet is one of the truly great values from the Loire. Though not as ageworthy as the higher-end cuvees, this wine exhibits beatifully exuberant fruit and spot-on regional typicity.
