“Ripe and juicy, this wine has a warm, ripe character. Its black fruits and smokey edge are structured by the tannins and concentration. The wine will be ready from 2025.”
About The Winery
The Grosbois brothers roamed the world, making wine in countries including New Zealand, Argentina, Australia, and Italy, before placing roots in the land of their ancestors. They returned full of knowledge and ideas, joining a new generation of winemakers in the Loire Valley. Their family domaine is situated in the heart of the Loire Valley, in Panzoult, AOP Chinon. The domaine sits on the right bank of the Vienne between Tours and Saumur, around the site of the Pressoir (winepress in English), a 15th-century fortified farm. The wines of Chinon are close to Nicolas and Sylvain's heart. Specializing in Cabernet Franc, the typical variety of Chinon, the brothers craft wines that are bountiful, robust, and structured.
