Blend: 100% Cabernet Franc
From: Chinon, Loire Valley, France
Taste: Very fresh, almost primal, with intense blackberry and cherry fruit coursing along, held together by chalk and tobacco notes that ripple underneath. There's a nice bright finish.
Marc Plouzeau is one of Chinon's most prolific—and talented—winemakers. Thanks to the will of two generations, his family restored Chinon's Château de la Bonnelière to its once-noble status, as well as its original vocation: vineyards and wine.
In 1976, Pierre Plouzeau bought the family property, renovated the castle and replanted the vineyards. In 1989, a modern winery was born, along with a wine: "Chinon Château de la Bonnelière." Pierre's son, Marc, took over the domain in 1999, continuing to develop, going fully organic, and perfecting the cellar.
