Le Ligerien Chinon Le Vieux Breton - Le Clos Noire

Chinon Le Vieux Breton - Le Clos Noire

It’s a distinct departure for our Cape Crusader but, already noted for his Francophile tendencies, Rick couldn’t resist the opportunity of liberating a couple of barrels of this young Chinon from the somewhat monosyllabic Bruno Sourdais in Cravant-les-Coteaux. It just seemed a logical extension to be able to offer a northern hemisphere equivalent as a sequel.

The wine comes from the renowned Clos de Noiré vineyard, just outside of the town of Chinon and made famous by the likes of Philippe Alliet and the family Couly. Bruno’s parcel is owned by his in-laws, which he tends to sell it off en-vrac (in bulk) to his private clients who turn up at the cellar door armed with their five-litre cubitainers. Our Rick felt it was too good to be consigned to anonymity, so made Bruno an offer he couldn’t understand.
