Domaine de la Commanderie

Chinon "MediƩvale"


This wine is light, fruity and very aromatic, presenting well-rounded, silky tannins. It’s a wine to enjoy while still very young and offers subtle aromas of red fruit and spices and flavors of violet and licorice in the mouth.


Chinon AOC


Our young vines, planted on sand and gravel, express themselves between the hillside dominating the Chinon appellation and the river, the Vienne. Clay soils, with Turonian limestone as the bedrock, are the preferred terroirs of our old vines, which flourish and reach an optimal concentration for a quality raw material. On the wine-growing soils of Panzoult, Cabernet Franc expresses its fine freshness. Our estate also extends over the town of Cravant les Coteaux, which has gravelly clay soils on which our Cabernet Franc express their character.


Vinification takes place at moderate temperatures with short macerations to preserve the flattering aromas. 


This wine is particularly enchanting as an accompaniment to charcuterie, grilled meat and river fish, as well as white meat.
