Clos du Chêne Vert is one of Chinon's most legendary sites, actually located in the town itself, on the right bank of the Vienne. The very steep slope of the small two-hectare south-west facing vineyard and its clay and silico-calcareous soil explains why it is one of the oldest "crus" (growths) of the appellation. The 35 year old, Clos du Chêne Vert vines, offer long keeping and elegant wines.

A single vineyard in the city of Chinon is the source for this wine. Wholly owned by this producer, the vineyard has produced an intensely perfumed wine, showing the potential of the vineyard and of ripe Cabernet Franc. It is smoky, layered with tannins as well as blackberry fruits finished with acidity. All these elements will allow the wine to age. Drink from 2022.
