- 100% Cabernet Franc
The Domaine de la Semellerie stretches over 39 hectares of some of the best land on the hillsides in the village of Cravant-les-Côteaux. The wines are ideally situated, facing southwards dominating the Vienne valley.
The vineyard is planted on clay silica soils with an abundance of pebbles ensuring that the grapes reach a perfect maturity. They also guarantee perfect drainage and retain the heat of the sun during the day which is then absorbed by the grapes during the night. Chinon red wine is made from the grape variety Cabernet Franc and is an Appellation d'Origine Controlée wine.
"Easy-drinking red with summer pudding flavours. Serve cool on its own, with salmon or charcuterie." The Irish Times Magazine, 1 June 2013
