      ABOUT THIS WINE

      Le Chêne Vert is a name well known to lovers of Chinon, although few realize that Domaine Charles Joguet shares one hectare with another vigneron—Haute Olive! At 30 years of age, the vines are younger than those of Joguet and the exposure is also different, located on the south-south west hillside with an 18° slope. A light clay topsoil sits atop a limestone subsoil mixed with upper Turonian also known as millarge (yellow limestone). This Chinon is fermented in concrete and is aged for 10 months in new foudre.

      ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

      Bruno Sourdais carries an intuitive understanding of his vines and cellar work that cannot be learned at any school, only transmitted from one generation to another. He and his wife, Sophie, bring this perspective to the family’s extraordinary holdings in and around Cravant les Côteaux. Sensitivity to the varied terroirs in which their old-vine Cabernet Franc (the oldest planted about 928) grows and shows distinct expression in the wines. Through attentive viticulture and thoughtful cellar work, Bruno and Sophie seek a balance of fruit and acidity, freshness and subtlety, achieving some of the most soulful Chinon we know.
