2011 Les Blancs Manteaux, Domaine de la Noblaie , Chinon, Loire Valley

£13.50, 13%, Haynes, Hanson & Clark

Tasted at: Christmas Countdown

The “white coats” in the name refers to the limestone soils that give this remarkable Cabernet Franc its refreshing minerality. Pure, almost transparent winemaking allows the terroir to speak. Grassy, elegant and refined with a long, polished finish and filigree tannins.
