  • Arnaud's Wine Recommendation for this Summer

    Arnaud from Whelehans Wines' recommendation

    Why I love this Wine?

    Summer is here, and that being said, my recommendation is a wine that you can enjoy slightly chilled with friends or on your own!

    This terroir driven Cab Franc from the Chinon appelation, organically grown on Tuffeau sub soil and limestone sandy soil will offer freshness, fruitiness and leafy notes.

    Expect aromas and flavours of dark berries, blueberries, tomato leaf mixed with spicy and floral notes.

    A great summer red, crafted by the talented and youthful winemakers Tatiana and Jean Denys de Bonnaventure, that offers a delicate and refined structure, making it an ideal pairing to a platter of charcuterie or a delectable summer barbecue featuring grilled meat such as bell pepper & chicken brochettes. 

    Award / Review

    "This is from a feted family vineyard that has been crafting wines for over 700 years. The fruit is organically farmed, and hand harvested, with minimal intervention during fermentation. What you get is a deeply concentrated wine that is fresh and savoury, firm tannins highlighted by blackberry and blueberry notes, along with hints of spice and herbs."
