Chignin Vin De Savoie
Chignin is a dry white wine, pleasant to drink, with slight pearling, and a combination of flavors from different fruits, such as apples, with the scent of white flowers, such as acacia. It should be opened within 2 years and served at approximately 10°C.
The smell of this wine is absolutely delightful. The sweet aroma takes you through fields of delightful wake induced lucid dreams, almost smells so good that drinking it seems like a waste of fragrance. Then you wave good bye to the 2 seconds ago and immerse your palate into a lake of ecstasy. Whats remarkable is, the crisp sweet dryness that is pleasant from start to finish. The barrel isn't over whelming, actually is very very subtle, the transition is consistent in, there really is no transition. From start to finish, the layers of flavor dance on your taste buds. I could imagine this wine going good with anything you put it too. The alcohol vapors are gentle as well.
Cabernet Franc :
shares many of the same phenolic and aroma compounds as Cabernet Sauvignon but with some noticeable differences. Cabernet Franc tends to be more lightly pigmented and produces wines with the same level of intensity and richness. Cabernet Franc tends to have a more pronounced perfume with notes of raspberries, black currants, violets and graphite. It is often characterized by a green, vegetal strike that can range from leaves to green bell peppers. It has slightly less tannins than Cabernet Sauvignon and tends to produce a wine with a smoother mouthfeel. New World examples of Cabernet Franc tend to emphasize the fruit more and may delay harvesting the grapes to try and minimize the green leafy notes
The first thing I remember about this wine was how incredibly smooth it was. In the start, the dry bitter sweetness glides across your tongue as to coat it with a deep dark flavor. The barrel is well noted but not over powering. The taste seems to stay in your mouth for a good minute. Also, it left a some what fuzziness on my lips that was pretty nice.
