Chinon is a light body red wine such as Beaujolais Nouveau
and other red wines from the Loire Valley : Bourgueil
and red Sancerre.
large bowl found in red wine glasses is recommended
to let the wine breathe and release its aromas. The
more powerful the wine is, the more complex its aromas
are, the larger the bowl has to be in order for the
wine to breathe.
as Chinon is a light body wine, it doesn't need a
large bowl such as a red Burgundy wine which is a
full body wine.
white wine glass - 3 ounces glass - is suitable for
a light body red wine. However, a typical red wine
glass - 4 or 5 ounces glass - is also suitable.
note that a wine glass needs to be transparent, stemmed
and made of real crystal.
