Chinon "Grain d'expression"

Producing a quality wine for ageing without added sulphites is far from being an easy task. Doing without them requires a great deal of technical mastery on the part of the winemaker. It is a real headache, but with patience and passion, it is also a consecration! The wine is then the true reflection of the natural aromas of the grape. The Caves Alliance Loire offer you this "Véridic" cuvée, the result of a fine selection of grapes, combined with the use of a bio-protection technique in the vineyard.

Story

Location
This Chinon without sulphites is made from a selection of our best parcels of Cabernet Franc on the right bank of the Vienne.
Vinification
After an early morning harvest, the grapes are quickly vatted to allow a rapid start to fermentation, where the carbon dioxide will naturally protect the fragile aromas from oxidation. After a gentle extraction of more than 3 weeks, this fruity fresh Chinon is delicately aged.
Varietals
Cabernet franc : 100%

Advice

Serving

Tasting notes
