Jean Maurice Rauffalt Chinon Rouge 2015


The growing season for the 2015 vintage started very early due to exceptionally hot and dry spring weather. This made it possible for Rodolphe to vinify spectacular red 2015 Chinons across his vineyards. "The fine September weather" Raffault observes, "advanced maturation, and we recovered from the drought conditions. The heat reduced acidity and concentrated the juice in the grapes."


The fruit for Domaine Jean-Maurice Raffault's Chinon Rouge comes from several parcels on sandy, alluvial soil near the Vienne River. This origin gives a supple, fruity Chinon that is perfect for early drinking. The wine's bright cherry and raspberry flavors are best appreciated with a slight chill. Deep black cherry and aromas tinged with vanilla, chocolate... lead to a bright yet quite silken-textured palate loaded with ripe, pit- and herb-accented black cherry fruit that draws to a lip-smacking finish.
