Chateau de Coulaine Chinon Rouge Les Picasses
This product is currently sold out.
The estate, dating back to the early 1300s lies just to the north west of the town of Chinon and comprises around 18ha made up of a number of extremely well sited and famous plots on the Coteaux. The estate has for many years employed a strict policy of 'selection massale' so as well as a high average vine age there is an extra element to the quality that shines through in the wines. Fully organic since 1997.
From a south facing section of the legendary Picasses vineyard Chateau de Coulaine Chinon Rouge ‘Les Picasses’ wine has just the right amount of age to put it firmly in the middle of its optimum drinking window. Charming and approachable yet unmistakably serious.
2017 will be coming shortly but it was too good an opportunity to miss to take the last few cases of the highly scored 2016 vintage. Enjoy with Confit duck and some very slow cooked lentils.
