A lighter red wine ideal for warmer seasons, this organic Chinon is still a characterful and very tasty wine but with the lovely herby edge and freshness of good Cabernet Franc.

'Cuvée de Pâques' is made from Stéphane's youngest vines averaging 25 years old. Only natural yeasts are used during the three week fermention, added sulphur is kept to a minimum (just a single application of 3g/hl) and the wine undergoes a light filtration before ageing in concrete vats. Bottling takes place close to Easter ('Pâques'), usually in the April after harvest.

Tasting notes

An unoaked Chinon with youthful, wild-berry fruit, supple, chalky tannins and a refreshing Cabernet Franc tang on the long finish.

Food match

Young and balanced this is the perfect match for everyday dishes such as pasta with a herby tomato sauce or a simply grilled lamb chop.

VINTAGE: 2018/19
