The famous vineyard of Chinon Established in 1921 by Baptiste Dutheil, then developped by René Couly who married Madeleine Dutheil, the House of Couly-Dutheil has become over the years the great name for Chinon. Today Couly-Dutheil remain a family house owned by the third and fouth generation. A land blessed by God The Chinon region has all the qualities of the greatest soils. Its semi-oceanic climate is exceptionaly mild and benefits of long sunny periods. The variety of soils and their particular qualities allows the cabernet-franc (98% of the vineyard) to express all its fineness and its celebrated "taffetas" within a range of strong personalities. Three priviledge soils The sandy and gravelly plains along the Vienne river for the thirst quenching light and fruity wines. The clayey, siliceous slopes and flat-lands producing fine and subttle wines. The clayey and chalky hills where are born the sumptuous wines meant for ageing. The House of Couly-Dutheil Of the 2000 hectares of the Chinon vineyard, Couly-Dutheil vinifies some 130 hectares of which 90 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.

The 2011 Les Chanteaux Chinon white is a very nice example of Chenin blanc that has a bit of maturity. The color, aroma, flavir and texture are rich, velvety and honeyed. No himts of oxidation, which arer so common in Chenin that is not fresh. Ansolutely delicious, satisfying wine, and a very fine example of dry Loire Chenin lanc.
