Chateau Petit Thouars Rouge Le Georges (750ml)
Chateau du Petit Thouars is a family run 16-hectare vineyard and winery nestled in corridors of natural limestone caves in the Chinon appellation of the Loire Valley. The property was deeded to the family by Cardinal Richelieu in 1636 and vineyards that surround the farm house were planted in 1975. The wines of Petit Thoars are offer refreshing acidity and minerality and a pure expression of varietal and terroir.
This wine is named after the present day owner’s ancestor Georges Aubert de Saint Georges; who acquired Château du Petit Thouars and became the Comte du Petit Thouars in 1636. The Cabernet Franc grapes are fermented with the skins for good tannic structure, aromatics and depth of fruit flavour. The nose is pronounced with red fruit, floral notes and white pepper.
