2010 Les Chiens Chiens, Chinon, Domaine de la Noblaie

2010 Les Chiens Chiens, Chinon, Domaine de la Noblaie

Last evening we enjoyed the excellent 2010 Les Chiens Chiens, Chinon from Jérôme Billard's fine Domaine de la Noblaie. This seductively soft and rich Chinon that has enough acidity to prevent it from being cloying comes from 30 year old vines on thick clay and flint. It is matured for a year in 400-litre barrels and then spends a further eight months in stainless steel tank. 

It was a very good match for our rump steaks from Kingussie's long established  and highly reputed butcher – George Gow.
