Two supermarket Chinons

Domaine de Rosette Chinon 2014, Loire, France (£9.49 Marks & Spencer)
Young, refreshing, almost crunchy style, with a slightly leafy edge to the earthy raspberry and cherry flavours, and a hint of tar on the finish. S-

Domaine du Colombier Chinon 2012, Loire, France (£7 Sainsbury’s)
Showing its maturity both in a light brown tinge and in the fading fruit flavours. There’s still some leafy, plummy blackcurrant and blackberry character hanging on in there but it’s neither young and fresh or old and profound. But still an OK midweek quaff. C+
