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.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

This parcel is situated in the enclosed vineyard of the Chateau d’Isore, completed in the 17th century. The ancient cellar of the Chateau is located beneath the vines.

The 3 hectare vineyard was fully planted in 1938 with a selection massale, which is largely intact to this day.

The soil is a mix of clay and limestone and the exposition of the sloping vineyard is north-west.

The Clos d’Isore is aged for 18 months in 1-5 year old barriques on its fine lees and malolactic fermentation takes place in cask.

It is a wine for long ageing.

Tasting Note

Light and fruity on the nose with accents of cherry. Light to medium bodied. Smooth, with complex cassis and dark cherry flavours. Dry finish with a few tannins. Vegan.

Food Pairing

Beautiful slightly chilled, this Chinon will pair with stronger dishes.  Great with roast beef, meat balls in tomato sauce, roast pork and many vegetarian dishes such as lentil and bean casserole, roasted red peppers.
