Domaine Jean-Maurice Raffault
Chinon Clos de l’Hospice

Jean-Maurice Raffault is one of the great personalities of Chinon. Upon taking over the family Domaine in 1973, he revolutionised local practices and put new practices in place that were widely emulated in the region. Beginning with only the 4.5 hectares he inherited from his father Maurice, Jean-Maurice purchased and planted some of the finest known sites of Chinon. Rodolphe Raffault succeeded his father as winemaker and manager in 1997. Drawing on his experience in Burgundy, Rodolphe initiated the practice, for this top cuvees, of carrying out the wine’s malolactic fermentation in 100% new barrels. This practice, rare in Chinon, results in dramatically expressive and pure wines.
