Selection Massale Vintage Chinon Offering 2010
Alain Lenoir, Domaine les Roches, Chinon


A bottle of 1989 Chinon pulled from the Lenoir's cellar

Along with the new releases from Domaine les Roches we offered last week, we have secured small (and I am talking seriously small, it took two visits to convince these two to sell us any vintage wine) lots of three back vintages that Alain and Jerome consider exemplary and that show what these wines can do with serious bottle age.  Alain, who made the wines, selected from the domaine's cellar three vintages that stand out among the finest he made.  These are decidedly old school wines from a decidedly old school producer (even the labels haven't changed since the 1960s).  Alain still sells wines by the liter from his cellar to people in the surrounding villages for astoundingly cheap prices ("it's what we've always done" he tells us with a shrug).  Of the three vintages we have the 1989 is the true standout, from a legendary vintage in the Loire.
