Jean-Maurice Raffault 2008 Chinon Rosé

Medium orangey-pink.

Full cherry / raspberry smell.

Dry to slightly off-dry, a flavorful bowl of fruit, red raspberry, pineapple and peach, with minerals herbes provencales (I wonder what herbs of the Loire are called), long tart finish. Refreshing and food friendly, perhaps food-insistent.

Good bottle for $14.95. Turn up the heat and pretend it's summer! (100% Cabernet Franc, a grape that succeeds so well nowhere better than in Chinon.)
