GET A TASTE OF OUR FAVORITES
A definitive estate in Chinon, producing elegant and age-worthy Cabernet Franc.
This very special cuvée of Chinon Rouge is named "La Baronnie Madeleine" and is bottled only in top-quality vintages, and only after a blind tasting confirms its success!
This cuvée is named for the winemaker's grandmother and it represents the style of the "Feminine Ideal" to this producer: richness and elegance. The wine must be round, charming, and complex with elegant and rich tannins to ensure good aging potential.
It is held at the winery for extended bottle age and only sent to the market 2 to 3 years after harvest.
Couly-Dutheil vinifies some 130 hectares of which 78 are their own property located over the three production areas of the appellation. If the quality of the soils, amongst the best in Chinon, contributes to the renown of Couly-Dutheil, their quest for quality in the selection of vintages and love for perfection in maturing adds to their prestige!
