"Les Graviers"

Chinon Rouge

100% Cabernet Franc

Immensely drinkable and rewarding, this wine is pure pleasure. With a brilliant ruby color, aromas reveal red fruits with a touch of pepper and a warm roasted note. The palate is balanced with flavors of pepper, raspberry, and black currant. Good volume and freshness are supported by relaxed tannins for an enjoyable wine in its youth and with some age.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Native yeast fermentation without enzymes, offers a pure experience that truly captures the terroir of the river valley that runs through the region of Chinon. From 8 small parcels around the villages of Rivière and Chinon. The name of this wine references the gravel soils typical of the river valley.

"Les Coteaux"

Chinon Rouge

100% Cabernet Franc

With a deep garnet-red color, the aromas are complex with smoked peppers, charred tobacco leaf, and wild berries. The palate is rich with voluptuous dark fruits, pepper, and earth. A noticeable acidity helps freshen the length and solidify the structure. This age-worthy structure integrates well with tannins that will soften with time and air.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The name “Les Coteaux” references the fact that this special cuvée comes from hillside parcels between 200-300 feet above the valley floor. From 14 small parcels (5 Ha) in Ligré, La Roche Clermault, and Chinon, this wine is fermented with the wild yeast of the vineyards and shows a distinct character that is markedly different from the “Graviers.”
