The chalky slopes and gravel soils that flank the Loire River as it passes through the towns of Anjou and Saumur provide a home to the Chenin Blanc variety, producing dry, medium and dessert wines with good acidity and the Loire Valley`s best sparkling wines. The natural cellars carved into the chalk are ideal for slow maturation of the sparkling Crémant wines made by the traditional bottled fermented method and as mushroom farms!
Founded some 80 years ago by Pierre and Jacques Couly, the Domaine Couly-Duthiel is by far Chinon`s single most important producer, with some 100 hectares of its own vineyards. The care of the vineyards has now passed to Jacques son, Arnaud, who runs the vineyards in accordance with `la lutte raisonnee` or sustainable viticulture.
Made from Cabernet Franc grown on these beautiful vineyards on the slopes near Tours in the central Loire.Lovely pale rose colour, it has a fresh and fruity nose with subtle floral notes. Strong fruit on the palate with persistent and refreshing flavours make this ideal both by the glass or with food.
