Chinon wine is made from the harvest of the commune of the same name. In the classic version it is a drink made from rose varieties of berries. Sometimes some white grapes are added. Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are the varieties from which the wines are made. They can be stored in cool rooms, protected from direct sunlight for several decades without losing their great taste and aroma. The wines pair beautifully with many French and Italian dishes. Freshness, softness and lightness are the associations that arise in gourmets.
