Domaine Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Rouge “Le Puy” 2016


Sold out


100% Cabernet Franc

From our best clayed and chalky hillside (1,70 ha), exposed to the south, grape is harvested down, for a first time, in mid-August in order to only keep the ripest grapes. After a long maceration of at least 28 days, the malolactic fermentation of the wine takes place in new and 1 year old double barrels.

The maturation, during 18 months on lees, is an important overall factor process for the ageing of the wine that smoothes its important structure. These plots are located on the south slope of one of the “Puys du Chinonais” (small mountains that overlook the valley of the Vienne and the Loire), where many windmills were erected. One can distinguish the castle of Saumur at more than 20 km.

A vast network of former tuffeau quarries also extends below.
