Chateau de Coulaine

Operating since 1300, the family-owned estate of Château de Coulaine is rich in viticultural tradition. In 1988, Etienne and Pascale de Bonnaventure took over all viticulture and winemaking responsibilities and have grown the estate to its current 18 hectares. Planted mostly to Cabernet Franc (with a little Chenin blanc making both Chinon blanc and Touraine blanc) the wines are now made by their son, Jean.

In 1997, these vineyards were the first in the appellation to be certified organic. All grapes are hand-harvested and vinification follows a non-interventionalist path. Low yields mean deeply concentrated, savoury and succulent expressions of Cabernet Franc with ripe and polished tannins – a harmonious balance between tradition and modernity. Simply some of the purest and most deliciously approachable wines you will find in Chinon.
