A great option for those looking for lighter reds or lower alcohol wines. It pairs well with fish dishes – try chilling it in the fridge for 15-30 minutes before serving to increase further the freshness.
89 Points - The Wine Gang, 'Utterly beguiling and classically styled light red from the Loire, a pure Cabernet Franc with deliciously sappy red fruit and just a touch of violet-floral perfume, graphite and leafy freshness on the finish, the tannins light and gently crunchy. Chill for 20 minutes to have with salmon, tuna or a minute steak.' April 2015 (2013 vintage)
The Château de la Bonnelière, the property of the Plouzeau familly 1846, is in the commune of la Roche Clermault, just to the south of Chinon. The vines are planted on the upper slopes of the left bank of the Vienne river in chalky clay soil with an ideal aspect.
