Description

Jean-Maurice Raffault was one of Chinon’s great personalities. Upon taking over the family Domaine in 1973, he revolutionised local practices and established new practices 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 cuvées, of carrying out the wine’s malolactic fermentation in 100% new barrels.  This practice, rare in Chinon, produces dramatically expressive and pure wines.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

This parcel is situated in the enclosed vineyard of the Chateau d’Isoré, completed in the 17th century. The ancient cellar of the Chateau is located beneath the vines.  The 3-hectare vineyard was entirely planted in 1938 with a selection massale, which is largely intact today.

The soil is a mix of clay and limestone, and the sloping vineyard’s exposition is North-West.  Viticulture: Sustainable/ Organic

The Clos d’Isoré is aged 14 months in 1–5-year-old barrels on its fine lees, and malolactic fermentation occurs in a cask. It is a wine for long ageing,

Tasting Note

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

Food Pairing

This Chinon will pair beautifully chilled with more substantial dishes.  Great with roast beef, meatballs in tomato sauce, roast pork and many vegetarian dishes such as lentil and bean casserole and roasted red peppers.
