About the Wine
This fabulous white Wine produced by Couly Dutheil is made in the Chinon area of the Loire Valley. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by Couly Dutheil. Chinon Blanc, Le Chenin, Couly Dutheil is an interesting wine, made from Chenin Blanc grapes. This wine has a cork closure and is like many wines in our list, this wine is suitable for vegan diets. The Domaine‘s vineyards are all grassed throughout and run according to the rules of sustainable agriculture, the estate has placed an increasing emphasis on high foliage, de-leafing around the bunches to keep the grapes healthy an then picking as late as possible to get full phenolic ripeness.
This great little grape is so diverse, it is capable of producing a broad range of wines from dry to very sweet and sparkling. It has a high acidity, can age very well, and makes a fantastic food wine.
- Passion Fruit
Following on from a fantastic vintage the year before, French vineyards endured a mixed bag of weather conditions in the early part of the growing season followed by a long, hot summer which produced some memorable wines, even to rival to the excellence of the previous year.Explore France
