The vines here predate Jérôme’s family’s ownership. Vinification is done in a vat carved out of the rock dating back to the 15th century. Subsequently, the wine has a pleasing line of minerality running through it with nice, chalky tannins and tremendous depth of fruit. New to our range last year, this wine has the potential to become a Lay & Wheeler favourite.

“In his own words, Jérôme Billard looks for a style of chinon that is correct, ripe and not vegetal but not too tannic. My own experience with the wines suggests this is achieved in spades.”
