Château de Coulaine Chinon ‘Clos de Turpenay’


Exceptional Cabernet Franc from a parcel that survived phylloxera

Château de Coulaine is a historic Chinon estate where the De Bonnaventure family have made wine continuously since 1300. The family live in a flamboyant, Gothic chateau largely built in 1460-70, with additions from the 19th century. The De Bonnaventures use an incredibly, deep maze of hidden cellars (whose entrance is camouflaged by hanging ivy) for the barrel ageing of their wines. Clos de Turpenay is from a single-vineyard, which was the only parcel of vineyard in the appellation to survive the plight of phylloxera in the 1870s.

The wine has notable red fruit aromas which lead to a palate that has similarly intense red fruits, and a marked saline, mineral flavour. Good structure, ripe tannins and beautiful length.
