Wilfrid Rousse, Chinon, Les Bois de Beaumont, 2013
In Stock Now!
Wilfrid Rousse has 18 hectares of Cabernet Franc, across a wide range of soils. Having completed three years in conversion the wines since 2011 are certified organic. Les Galuches is from young vines grown on sand and gravel lying near to the river Vienne: it’s always a perfectly correct, fresh, lead-pencil Chinon for early drinking. A 7 hectare vineyard on the plateau of Beaumont-en-Véron is the source of Les Bois de Beaumont, while a walled vineyard planted in 1950 on clay limestone soils yields the impressive and ageworthy Clos de la Roche.
