The estate of Domaine Gasnier is comprised of 25 hectares, all within the commune of Cravant-les-Coteaux. The Gasniers employ biodynamic techniques in farming, no pesticides or herbicides. The newly released 2019 is a beautiful bright and fruity wine, redolent of cedar and fresh red fruit. The wine is vinified in tank to maintain that pristine fruit.
In what appears to be a great 2020 vintage in France, Gasnier’s Chinon (Cabernet Franc) is a particular standout and I’m expecting it will once again be rewarded with a high score when the Wine Advocate gets their hands on it. For now, it remains a little bit of a well-kept secret. For an under $25 Loire Valley red, this one more than overdelivers.
