2010 Sauvion Dilection Chinon. 12.5%

Sauvion Dilection

100% Cabernet Franc

Nice refreshing red wine. Mid weight.

Interesting to see a Cabernet Franc stand alone, instead of being in a blend like it usually is.

Bright cherries, minty oil and lifted oregano. Raspberry laced crunchy meringue.

Nice backbone. High toned acid.

Good, solid wine.

Approx $45 from Steve’s Fine Wine and Food.

Tasted 5th March 2013

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
