Domaine de la Haute Olive 2016 Chinon "Les Cournuelles"
This Chinon is sourced from two cabernet franc parcels: one with 60-80 year-old vines and the other with 100 year-old vines. These exposed slopes are south-facing and overlook the Vienne valley. The clay-limestone soils found here are covered with cornuelles (small hard white stones), giving this wine its name. Fermented in concrete, the wine is then aged for 15 months in neutral foudre (ranging 10-50 years old), 20% of which is new.
