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.

I like to have lots of things on hand that d... Read More
