A fresh, fruity wine. Where some may like it, I regret a little the touch of acidity in the middle of the mouth (it fades away in the finish however). Good value for money with the organic label anyway.more reviews

Impressive for its freshness, fruitiness and finesse! Here's a Chinon to knock your socks off!
The vines are on average 30 years old, cultivated on alluvial sand on the banks of the Loire. The wine is aged in stainless steel vats for 8 months. It displays aromas of black fruits, specifically blackberries and black cherries. The beautiful structure is soft, meaty and fine with notes of spice and liquorice. A good structure supported by smooth tannins on the finish. A superb Chinon from these two talented brothers! It has it all!

A real treat! An intense nose of black fruit and mint, green pepper. In the mouth it also expresses notes of summer truffle. The tannins are already silky despite its youth, with a tight finish. A very good Chinon! Formidable with a rib of beef.

A beautiful expression of the Chinon terroir. The black fruits mingle harmoniously with the spices. The tannins are well blended and the Cabernet Franc expresses itself in all its delicacy and elegance. It is really superbly made!

Bertrand & Vincent MARCHESSEAU

Bertrand and Vincent Marchesseau took over the family estate in 2001. The estate has the particularity of being located in three appellations: Bourgueil (14 ha), Chinon (5 ha) and St Nicolas de Bourgueil (3 ha). The roles on the estate are well defined: vineyard work and vinification for Bertrand, maturing and trading for Vincent. Their differences allow them to be perfectly complementary and to bring together all the qualities that are essential to the winegrowing profession. Their philosophy in a few words: "...to know how to dare; but the difficulty is to dare with wisdom... Dare... organic farming. Our production philosophy is based on the search for constant quality thanks to a certain level of requirement, a permanent questioning, a rigorous work on the vineyard (analysis and work of the soil, grassing, thinning, leaf removal, sorting...), and this in the respect of the environment. From this point of view, organic farming is an obvious choice. The Bourgueil, Chinon and St Nicolas de Bourgueil appellations are produced from a single grape variety, Cabernet Franc. We produce different cuvées according to the terroir: "Roc' Collection" from clay-limestone slopes, "Funambule" on stony islands, "Poids plume" and "Rosé Shadocks" from gravel-sand terraces; with strong visual identities that make a lasting impression.
