Domaine de la Commanderie Chinon Cuvee Selection
"In the heart of the Loire valley, Philippe Pain produces authentic Chinon wines of exceptional character and quality. Here you can find seductive easy drinking rosés, convivial medium bodied reds, not forgetting, of course, our white wines – grown in smaller quantities - that are found nestling amongst the Cabernet Franc vines beloved of Rabelais and so typical of this region.
Le Domaine de la Commanderie owns its own vines and vinifies in its own winery and is therefore free to create wines that best express the character of the local “terroir”."
"This wine has a beautiful deep ruby colour and has a powerful fruity, floral nose. The attack is frank and lively when the wine is young, after a few years it offers a variety of candied fruits with a velvety finish. This full-bodied wine goes beautifully with both red and white meats and cheese." - Domaine de la Commanderie
