It’s always exciting to welcome a new producer to our shelves, and we’re happy to introduce Les Athlètes du Vin. The négociant project was started by a group of French winemakers calling themselves Vini Be Good, and the goal was to make delicious, traditional, value-driven wines from the Loire Valley using their own grapes as well as grapes purchased from friends and neighbors.
The 2020 Chinon is made from 100% Cabernet Franc sourced from vineyards composed of clay, limestone, and flint soils. The grapes are hand harvested and fermented in concrete for three weeks before aging in oak vats for six months. This is a joyous wine, with fresh strawberry and raspberry complementing those light green herbaceous notes that Cab Franc is famous for. The wine is structured, lively, and a pleasure to drink—it’s what some might call “glou-glou.” The perfect bistro wine!
