AOC Chinon

AOC Chinon is the most important designation of Loire red wine (15 millions of bottle per year). Vineyards are on 26 towns, to the south west of Tours. You can find red (85%), rosé (13%) and white (2%) wines.

The various wines of Chinon are grown on alluvial terraces, hillsides and limestone hills overlooking the Loire and the Vienne rivers, or on plateaus of flint and clay.

The Cabernet Franc grape, the "star of Chinon" is unique and multifaceted and able to play all big roles. Chinon wines are both fine and powerful, strong and structured.

 

Chinon is not Chinon without Rabelais ! The great humanist, born and bred here, left his footprint in the 15th Century, a spirit of conviviality, sharing and joy which has lasted to this day.

 

Culture in every sense !
