Clos de la Niverdiere Chinon 2012
Clos de la Niverdiere is located in the commune of Beaumont-en-Veron in the heart of Chinon, Loire Valley. Owner Martine Bude owns just 3ha plated to Cabernet Franc. Passionate about Cabernet Franc, all of her vines are cultivated without weeding or treated with harsh chemicals. Everything is done to respect mother nature and to preserve the balance of the ecosystem. In Chinon there are only 18 communes on both sides of the Vienne River. Cabernet Franc thrives here in gravel, sandy soils by the river and chalky, limestone soils on the hillsides. The grapes are completely destemmed and vatted for 12-18 days. Winemaker: Jean-Louis Breton.
