Tasting note for the 2009 Couly-Dutheil La Baronnie Madeleine Chinon
Purple colour. Very green on the nose but blows away to some extent. Dark fruit and some earthy tones. To me the palate is dominated by the greenness, represented by a good fistful of paprika. There is some earthy tones here as well as dark fruit and some sour cherries. The finish has good length with a very vegetal aspect and earthy with some sour cherries. 84 points
This is a good Chinon at a very nice price point. It has the green aspect that you often find in these wines, but is not my cup of tea. It’s well made, but I score my wines based on whether I like them or not.
