The Chinon appellation produces some of France’s most drinkable and refreshing red wines. Since taking over in 2008, sixth generation winemaker Bruno Sourdais fashions delectable, delicate Cabernet Franc with exceptional value for money. The emphasis here is on traditional winemaking with a careful approach in the vineyard and the wines all spending a little time in oak. In spite of the humble price tags, Bruno is rightly considered one of the top producers in the appellation.
From fresh, fruity examples for drinking young, to serious, complex, ageworthy Cabernet Francs, Chinon is one of France’s best locations for reds.
