Domaine Jean-Maurice Raffault
Chinon Rouge

Rodolphe Raffault succeeded his father Jean-Maurice as winemaker and manager of their 14-generation family estate in 1997, after completing his studies at the Dijon University school of oenology. Today, Domaine Jean-Maurice Raffault owns 50 hectares of vines in 7 communes and produces white, rose and red Chinon wines. Their Cabernet Franc vines average 35 years of age, of which 10 hectares across the sites are 50 years of age. The domaine practices sustainable viticulture. The soils are either plowed or planted with grass. No chemical fertilizers or herbicides are used.

The fruit for Domaine Jean-Maurice Raffault’s Chinon Rouge comes from vineyards on sandy, alluvial soil near the Vienne River. This origin gives a supple, fruity Chinon that is perfect for early drinking. The expressive bouquet of dark berries and violets is followed by supple dark berry/cherry fruit note. The wine’s fresh and bright flavours are best appreciated slightly chilled.
