    Winemaker Notes

    Robust scents of black fruit and vanilla. On the palate, fresh, elegant and refined, with soft, fruity, pleasing notes of blackcurrant and spice. Delicious with white meat, grilled red meat, turkey and a range of hard cheeses such as swiss, cheddar, and gouda.

    The Coudray-Montpensier estate, located in the Chinon appellation, is composed of old vines and parcels planted just over 10 years ago and the entire vineyard covers an area of 30 hectares. Here, each parcel is tended with great care, to ensure that the geological identity of the soils is respected. The vines on the limestone clay soils deliver aromatic, powerful and structured wines; in the sandy plains the results are supple and fruity. The rosés show finesse and authenticity.

    Touraine, France

    An important red wine appellation in the Touraine district of the Loire, Chinon produces fanciful, light-bodied reds from the Cabernet Franc grape. Chinon also makes charming rosés from the same grape as well as white wines from Chenin blanc. But the reds give the area its fame. Often scented with fresh herbs, black tea and violets, Chinon reds show a lovely combination of fruit and acidity. However, styles have become more concentrated and ripe in recent years from improvements in vineyard management. Modern methods include planting grass between vineyard rows, using higher trellises and deleafing to increase sunlight to berries and therefore improve ripening. Even still, red Chinon is intended to be a light to medium bodied, refreshing wine to be enjoyed in its youth.

    Fuller-bodied Chinons come from vineyard sites on the clay and tuffeau limestone slopes, usually from the southern exposed slopes of Cravant-les-Coteaux, and the plateau above Beaumont. Lighter styled wines come from the sand and gravel vineyards near the Loire or Vienne Rivers with the most refined examples coming from the area around Panzoult

    Cabernet Franc, a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon, is the subtler and more delicate of the Cabernets. Today Cabernet Franc produces outstanding single varietal wines across the wine-producing world. Somm Secret—One of California's best-kept secrets is the Happy Canyon appellation of Santa Barbara. Here Cabernet Franc shines as a single varietal wine or in blends, expressing sumptuous fruit, savory aromas and polished tannins.
