2014 Chinon Clos de l'Echo, Couly-Dutheil
A toasty aroma slowly giving way to a very structured core of black cherry, currant, iron and black olive notes. There's lots of grilled herb and mineral on the finish, with good underlying finish.
Top quality Cabernet Franc
Domaine Couly-Dutheil are based in the town of Chinon, at the heart of the appellation. The family have only been in the wine-making business since 1921, which can seem quite short in this part of the world. But their reputation is extending far and wide; they have some extremely fine vineyards and produce some fabulous wine. Chinon is also a style of wine which rarely gets a chance to age as long as it deserves and the Clos de l`Echo has the quality, stuffing and density for a very long life.
