Chateau de Coulaine Chinon is a certified organic Cabernet Franc from the hillside and riverbank of Chinon, France.

Description

Le Château de Coulaine is a very ancient family exploitation passed on from generation to generation since the Le Boucher and the Garguesalles until the Denys de Bonnaventure and the de Kerros.

The castle was built in 1470 by Jehan de Garguesalles, and we have archives proving that the wine was produced since 1430 approximately. My ancestors built a big farm, and wine was not at all the only good, among cereals and silk production…

In 1534 Coulaine is quoted by Rabelais in his book Gargantua, he used as a decor many places in the area of Chinon and Véron and quoted massively Chinon’s wines.

This certified organic Cabernet Franc from Chinon, France, sourced from hillside and riverbank vineyards with sand and limestone soil, features 30+ year old vines, indigenous yeast fermentation, and aging in 75% concrete and 25% stainless steel. The wine presents powerful aromas and flavors of red berries and cherries, complemented by a touch of spice, offering a silky and textural palate with ample energy and concentration.
