L'Huisserie 2011 Domaine Philippe Alliet Chinon (4.8/5)
Notes: It appears deep ruby with good tears. On the nose it's clean offering med+ intensity of savoury blackberries, mineral notes, spices and cigar box, some herbs, flint mineral notes with hints of tar recalled on the palate. The latter is dry, with balanced med+ acidity, med alcohol, medium+ body with very good concentrated mid palate and grip offered by high density velvety tannins. Med+ finish. The purity, elegance, vibrancy and thrilling sensations that only a cabernet franc at his maximum expression can donate! Really one of the best unblended Cab Franc I have ever had.
