From the south-facing clayey-siliceous plateaus of the commune of Beaumont-en-Véron in the northwest of the AOP, the 2018 Chinon Les Peuilles opens with a deep, pure, fresh, fine and aromatic bouquet of perfectly ripe and fleshy black and blue berries as well as dark cherries intertwined with floral and spicy as well as earthy/stony and even bloody notes. Discreet (excellent) reduction here. Aged in large foudres for up to 12 months, this is a full-bodied and juicy, silky, refined and elegant Chinon with a delicate acidity and tannin structure and a long, warm and intense finish. The 2018 already drinks very well, but it can also be cellared for 12-16+ years. Tasted in April 2021.

This parcel is sheltered by a wood, lending the 2018 Chinon Les Peuilles a ripe and fruity style filled with blueberry compote and blackberry flavors. Welcoming and elegant, it offers judiciously extracted, gentle tannins that lightly coat the palate with a fine grain. Seductive and appealing, retaining elegance and ease.
