Clos d'Isoré

This parcel is situated in the enclosed vineyard of the Chateau d’Isore, completed in the 17th century. The ancient cellar of the Chateau is located beneath the vines. The 3 hectare vineyard was fully planted in 1938 with a selection massale, which is largely intact to this day. The soil is a mix of clay and limestone and the exposition of the sloping vineyard is north-west. The Clos d’Isore is aged for 18 months in 1-5 year old barriques on its fine lees and malolactic fermentation takes place in cask. It is a wine for long aging, and the taster will appreciate the wine’s complex cassis and dark cherry qualities after at least 3 years in the cellar.

Chinon rosé

Chinon Rose is considered the finest rose of the Loire Valley. J-M Raffault’s Chinon Rose comes from Cabernet Franc grapes planted across 10 hectares of sane and gravel soils. To enhance the wines’s freshness, it is vinified using 2/3 pressed and 1/3 saigne juice. Fermentation is carried out at low temperature with native yeasts, and the wine is bottled in March following the harvest to preserve the bright and spicy red berry fruit.

Les Picasses

The Les Picasses is situated on a plateau at the summit of the hills overlooking the Vienne. The site is the highest point between the Vienne and Loire Rivers and is very well exposed. It was home to many windmills in the 19th century. Vines were already planted here in the 15th century. The name Picasses derives from a vineyard tool with two points (pics) used to work on vines planted on stony soil. The soil in the Picasses vineyard is a blend of limestone and clay with small stones, which gives the wine its intensity and structure. J-M Raffault owns 6 hectares of Les Picasses, spread over ten parcels of vines between 15-60 years of age. The Les Picasses is aged in 3 to 10 year-old barriques for 18 months on its fine lees and malolactic fermentation take place in cask. It is a wine of great intensity of flavor (minerally-tinged black cherry and kirsch) and can be aged for many years.

About us

Company details

Since 1693, our 50-hectare estate vinifies white (Chenin), rose and red Chinon(Cab. Franc), each parcel separately to ensure the typicity of each terroir. One is the historical “Clos de l’Hospice” of Chinon. For maturing, with a very low quantity of sulfites , some former freestone quarries are used to hold 900 barrels. The domain is beginning a biologic conversion in 2016.
