CHINON


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.
Laurent Gouron will base his sales in 2017 for red with the Cuvée du Domaine 2015 then 2016, the Cuvée du Terroir 2011, the Cuvée Vieilles Vignes 2011 2011, the Cuvée Croix Boissée 2010, and the Cuvée Croix Boissée blanc 2014, then 2015. He tells us that, "in spite of a small harvest (60 % less), 2016 is a beautiful vintage wine thanks to the clement weather report of September, the wine acquired a beautiful maturity."
This CHINON rouge Cuvée Vieilles Vignes 2011, generous and firm, in dominant of plum, raspberry and cinnamon, is a colored wine, with silky and rich tannins, fleshy, which involves power and distinction and pursues an excellent evolution. We pursue with this CHINON rouge La Croix Boissée 2010, colored, strong as needs one, in the nose dominated by red berries (blackberry, wild strawberry), a very well raised vintage, of complex mouth (plum, licorice), of a big intensity, with velvety but rich tannins.
The CHINON rouge 2015 is intensified, very perfumed, a wine which feels well the morello cherry and undergrowth, to uncork in a roast pork. Remarquable CHINON La Croix Boissée blanc 2014, pure Chenin, raised into wine in barrels without exogenous yeasts at room temperature, of mouth lively as their CHINON rosé 2015, flattering, frank and supple at the same time.
