Chinon, France

$27 bottle / $154 half case / $276 full case

The du Petit Thouars family has been making wine since 1634 and their wines are a great addition to Park Avenue’s selection. This bottle offers a clean and focused representation of Cabernet Franc from the great 2010 vintage. Balanced acidity with intermingling flavors of smoke, jam and just a touch of barnyard. It would be very interesting to taste these wines blind against the likes of Olga Raffault or other well-known Chinon producers. I bet it would give them a run for their money! Goes hand in hand with charcuterie, cheese, pâté. Stash some in the cellar, this will go the distance.’
