Tasting Notes

This vineyard is situated on soil composed mainly of clay and chalk, locally referred to as tuffeau (Touraine’s local stone). It is out of this stone that Raffault’s underground wine cellars were dug during Roman times. Light, bright and slightly vegetative in their youth, these wines reveal their fullness after 5-7 years of cellaring.

Suggested food: Rabbit stew; light, creamy cheeses

12.5% Alc./Vol.


Critical Praise

"Sanguine and cigar notes frame the core of damson plum and dark cherry flavors in this medium-bodied, slightly chewy red. Black pepper and rosemary details linger on the finish. This shows great terroir typicity and flavor profile. Drink now through 2027. 2,200 cases made, 150 cases imported. — JM"
