Chateau de Coulaine Chinon
Château de Coulaine is a family-owned estate rich in viticultural tradition which has been operating continuously since 1300! Since 1988, Etienne de Bonnaventure has assumed the viticulture and winemaking responsibilities and has grown the estate to its current 12 hectares, all situated on Chinon’s plateaux. In 2014, his dynamic son Jean has joined the family domaine, taking over the winemaking duties with his wife Tatiana. The vineyards are certified organic, all the grapes are hand-harvested and vinification follows a non-interventionalist path. Coulaine’s low yields result in a deeply concentrated, savory and succulent expression of Cabernet Franc. This Chinon presents powerful aromas and flavors of red berries and cherries, with a touch of spice. Silky and textural on the palate with lots of energy and concentration. A lovely and complex Chinon from start to finish.
