ADD

The Chêne Vert comes from an exceptional terroir, one of the oldest crus in the Chinon appellation. Vintage 2013 was cool in the Loire, but thanks to this exceptional parcel, the Chêne Vert is still rich and dense. You should keep this one for chilly evenings in the fall, or—better yet—keep it for a few years. The wine is carefully aged for eighteen months in oak, giving the terroir time to fully express itself, and making this one of the most age-worthy cuvées of the domaine. –Julia Issleib
