Tasting Notes

An unoaked Chinon with youthful, wild-berry fruit, supple, chalky tannins and a refreshing Cabernet Franc tang on the long finish.

Producer details

Stéphane Mureau is an 8th generation vigneron with a 20 hectare estate in the esteemed Loire commune of Savigny-en-Véron to the north-west of Chinon, a region he describes as the “Pomerol of Chinon”. Between the Rivers Loire and Vienne, the soils are classic sandy gravel and the vines which range in age from 25 to 80 years are farmed organically. The winery was recently refurbished to be at the forefront sustainable practices and to better accommodate organic winemaking, and it is also noted for its fine underground cellar hewn from the tufa and decorated with sculptures carved by local artists.

In the vineyard

'Cuvée de Pâques' is made from Stéphane's youngest vines averaging 25 years old.

In the winery

Only natural yeasts are used during the three week fermentation, added sulphur is kept to a minimum (just a single application of 3g/hl) and the wine undergoes a light filtration before ageing in concrete vats. Bottling takes place close to Easter ('Pâques'), usually in the April after harvest.

Food Recommendations

Young and balanced this is the perfect match for everyday dishes such as pasta with a herby tomato sauce or a simply grilled lamb chop.
