This is made from two parcels, both planted in the 1940s. Jérôme uses the fifteenth-century tuffeau cuve in the old cellar to do a long, slow fermentation to bring out some delicious complexity in this Cabernet Franc. This has a subtle, sophisticated nose, and the palate is fine and enticing. Supple tannins, a juicy red fruit core, and a long flow with a mineral finish. With its precise fruit and gentle toast of oak, this feels almost Burgundian.
“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.”
