Description

"This Chinon comes from the villages of Riviere, Beaumont-en-Veron and Savigny-en-Veron. The soils here are a mix of Argilo-Calcaire and gravel which tend to produce wines that are a bit more approachable with soft tannins and lovely fruit. The core of the blend is a cuvee of old vines (45-50 years) raised mostly in used barriques, 1-3 years old. The balance is aged in tank, creating a wine that is bright, fresh and aromatic, with lovely cut. A perfect wine for picnics or by-the-glass in bistro-like settings."
