Vineyards

The property comprises of 30 hectares of vines, situated on the left bank of the river Vienne. The grapes grow on varied soils in the Chinon appellation, and thrive depending on the type of vintage. In dry and hot years, the vines are best suited to clay, limestone soils and in the wetter and cooler years they grow better on sandy soils. The Cabernet Franc used to make the Chinon is sourced from 14 hectares of vines grown in the finest vineyards in the Chinon appellation.

Vintage Information

Very promising across the region, with the same warm, dry summer that many other French regions enjoyed.

Vinification

After a cold maceration of up to 10 days and alcoholic fermentation, the wine spent between six and 12 months in oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

With robust aromas of black fruit and vanilla, the wine is refreshing with bright acidity and subtle, round tannins, with blackcurrant and spice on the finish.
