Gabare 2020 Domaine Groisbois: sweet and generous vintage

Gabare 2020 Domaine Groisbois

Coming from twelve sites never reunited since the 15th century, Gabaret Cuvée, A0C Chinon, proposed by the brothers Nicolas and Sylvain Grosbois, is a true ambassador of its terroir. The 24 hectares of Biodynamic Domaine vineyards thrive on the scree of the clay-sand mill, that emblematic chinonais tufa.

Gabare 2020, 100% Cabernet Franc, has a beautiful ruby ​​red color. The nose offers a rich aromatic palette of red fruits reminiscent of wild strawberries and blackberries. On the palate we find the freshness of the grapes and their pulp. The sweetness and complexity of the ripe fruit add to the longevity. Delicately integrated tannins structure the palate. Tip: decant the cuvée an hour before to give it a fullness that decreases slightly when opened.

Price: 19.50 euros in liquor stores and Domaine.
