This parcel is quintessential Chinon: at the top of the hill overlooking the Loire river, its flood plains, and the charming eponymous town. It is named after the huge and statuesque oak tree that grows at its edge. Its excellent position affords it good ripening and drainage. The soil here is clay and sand, and produces a wine with a pretty, red fruit structure, and some distinctively spicy notes. In 2018 it has a wonderful volume in a ripe style that retains exceptional minerality.
