2018 Chinon Le Clos, Bruno Sourdais

This is made from various parcels of old vines that are all located on the hillsides, with good drainage. This is really benchmark Chinon, with smoky red fruits, a spicy, herbaceous character to the firm tannins, and mineral acidity. Serious structure for the money.

2018 Chinon Le Clos, Bruno Sourdais
Serge et Bruno Sourdais

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.
