"A real dazzler in this classy vintage—the nose and flavors are ravishing. Only a curmudgeon could be blind to its beauty. This cuvée is the result of a blend of different plots of land located on the left bank of the Vienne river, all with the same soil profile. The cuvée Les Petites Roches, with its predominantly clayey and moderately chalky slopes and plateaus, offers wines with red fruit aromas and a nice mineral structure, to be enjoyed within five years of the vintage." - Winemaker Notes 

The 2018 Chinon Les Petites Roches is a blend of the fruits from different plots located on the left bank of the Vienne River, all with the same soil profile, which is predominantly clay and moderately chalky. The wine opens spicy and fresh, with floral-scented red fruit aromas. Silky, fresh and very elegant on the palate, with a silky texture and perfectly ripe and finely tannic fruit, this is a concentrated and quite intense medium to full-bodied red with a nice, persistent mineral structure and tart fruit on the finish." - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate
