Soil and terroir
The vineyards where Chinon wines grow lie on the banks of the river Vienne, on alluvial terraces, yellow limestone slopes and plateaus of sand and flinty clay.
Grape variety and know-how
100% Cabernet Franc.
Grapes are harvested when perfectly ripe, to deliver fine, supple, round tannins. Aged on lees for 6 months to allow the wine to achieve roundness.
A pleasurable, cherry red wine. The nose opens with powerful red fruit aromas. They reappear on the palate, this time accompanied by supple, silky, Cabernet Franc tannins. This Chinon goes perfectly with grilled red meats.
To be served between 15°C and 18°C.
