DOMAINE GOURON

DOMAINE GOURONFounded in 1946 by René Gouron, the DOMAINE will develop with the support of his Jacky son until in the Eighties. From now on, they are the little children LAURENT and STEPHANE which vinify and market together the 28 hectares which account the family property. Classified in Appellation CHINON Contrôlée le DOMAINE GOURON is parcelled out in many pieces: argilo-limestone and argilo-siliceous, on the slopes and gravels interfered sands, in plain. This diversity of grounds made it possible to create various vintages emphasizing the expression, fruity in plain and robust on the slopes. All the year an important work is granted to the vine in order to obtain the best fruits: the requirement of one prunes short, of the enherbés grounds and of polishing direct themselves towards controlled outputs, a better concentration and the respect of our environment. Our wines are matured in the micaceous chalk cellars with ideal conditions then bottled at the property. You will love this red Chinon vintage Vieilles Vignes 2014, a pure Cabernet franc from vines over 45 years old, powerful and complex, with nuances of well ripe red fruits and a touch of spices, it is a wine with well melted tannins, well balanced, fleshy, excellent guard. Their Chinon cuvée Terroir 2017, has a nice dress, bouqueté, a nose of red berries macerated, a very good frame, it is very charming and very round. Remarkable Chinon red 2018, (fermentation, maceration, then maturation in stainless steel vats), soft, fragrant (cherry, plum, humus), well fleshy, of a good length in the mouth, with ripe and tasty tannins. And the Chinon rosé, of very clear colour, with a subtle nose of strawberry, dry and friand, bright and fragrant in mouth.
