Strengthening our already exciting Loire wines (red, white, sparkling and sweet on offer) this is latest new wine for us from Chateau du Coulaine in Chinon. The estate, dating back to the early 1300’s lies just to the northwest of the town of Chinon and comprises around 18ha made up of a number of extremely well sited and famous plots on the ‘coteaux’ and up on the plateau overlooking the river Vienne.
This wine comes from vines with an average age of around 30 years, planted on cool clay soils over limestone bedrocks.
Wild yeasts; aged on its lees for 12 months in mainly old oak with just one or two new barrels each year. There’s no obvious flavour of wood but there’s a fabulous richness of texture for such a bright dry wine, the nod towards Burgundy.
