Pierre Sourdais Chinon Tradition 2016 (1x75cl)

Pierre Sourdais has built a reputation for the consistently high quality of his Chinon. With a plethora of different soil types on his 25-hectare property from which to choose his fruit, Pierre is able to produce wines of great character year in, year out. The Chinon Tradition, recently certified organic, is soft and supple, with ripe tannins and an elegant finish – a classic expression of Cabernet Franc.

After a manual harvesting of the grapes, the vinification takes place over 3 weeks at a controlled temperature of 25 to 30 °C. Daily pumping over promotes the alcoholic fermentation and allows for an optimal expression of the structure of the wine. The malolactic fermentation is carried out before ageing. After a few months of maturing in vats, a light filtration will be carried out before bottling in September.

This wine finds its balance from the diversity of its origins. There are subtle aromas of minerality, with a hint of flint that make the wine's complexity very attractive and enticing. The flavours are typical of this style of wine - ripe fruit and candied fruit mingle perfectly with the minerality.  It has an elegant finish and is a truly remarkable Chinon. This wine can keep for up to 8 years but is also delicious whilst young.

This wine is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
