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 sandstone, and produces a wine with a pretty red fruit structure, and some distinctively spicy notes. In 2019 it has harmonious balance, a little lighter in weight than the Varenne and Dioterie, it has this amazing freshness to the fruit.
The 2019 Clos du Chêne Vert Monopole is a linear, upright, sit up straight in class type of Cabernet Franc. While reductive at this stage, there's plenty of concentration and sinew here. Expect florals, black cherry and a linear, athletic finish. Needs time for its linearity to ease and its flower to blossom. Long length
