Domaine de la Commanderie Chinon Blanc


100% Chenin Blanc from a family estate that is Organically farmed in the Loire Valley.

Passionate winegrowers in the heart of the Loire Valley, at the foot of the hills of the AOC Chinon, Philippe and his daughters Clothilde and Honorine operate around fifty hectares of vines. These vines are planted on sand and gravelare between the hillside dominating the Chinon appellation and the river, the Vienne. Clay soils, with Turonian limestone as the bedrock, are the preferred terroirs for their old vines. This Chinon Blanc comes from young Chenin vines planted in the plain on a sandy loam soil and is a perfect pairing for fish and shellfish dishes.
