Philippe Alliet Chinon 2015
The entry-level Chinon from Philippe Alliet is one of the truly great values from the Loire. This wine exhibits beautifully exuberant fruit and spot-on regional typicity.
A serious, shy man, 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 one 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.
