Established in 1921 by Baptiste Dutheil and currently managed by René Couly and his wife Madeleine Dutheil, the House of Couly-Dutheil has become virtually synonymous with Chinon and is widely believed to be one of the finest producers in the region. With only 90 hectares planted in Chinon (as well as an additional 7 hectares in neighboring Saumur-Champigny) the family has the time to lavish the vines with attention and craft wines with the utmost care.
Today's wine is the very definition of PINK PLEASURE BOMB. Dry yet bursting at the seams with fruit, it has aromas and flavors of candied strawberries, red cherries, and Honeydew melon. Accents of pomegranates and apples appear on the mid-palate, while whiffs of baking spice and white pepper are revealed on the finish. Bright acidity brings it all into harmonious balance. It's the perfect juice for a warm, sunny day and will transport you to the Loire Valley in the summertime.
