BOURGUEIL – CHINON

Brand introduction

Chinon and Bourgueil are the appellation covering wines produced around the historic town of Chinon and Bourgueil (an 6 surrounding communes), in the central Loire Valley. These areas have been producing wine for many centuries, and although wines of all three colors are made there, the focus is now very clearly on reds. Small quantities of crisp white Chenin Blanc play a useful role here, but these account for just a few percent of total production. The typical, quintessential Chinon wine is tannic, leafy, berry-scented Cabernet Franc.
