The impressive Château Coudray-Montpensier, located in Chinon, has a rich history that dates to the heart of the Middle Ages (1090 AD). The castle was built during the 14th century and was owned by a succession of nobility. The property was eventually acquired by Dr. Christian Feray in 2005, who undertook major restorations to transform it into a cultural and gastronomic landmark.

The property comprises of 30 hectares of vines which are situated on the left bank of the river Vienne. The grapes grow on varied soils in the Chinon appellation, and thrive depending on the type of vintage. In dry and hot years, the vines are best suited to clay, limestone soils. In the wetter and cooler years, the vines grow better on sandy soils. The Cabernet Franc used to make this Chinon is sourced from 14 hectares of vines grown in the finest vineyards in the Chinon appellation.

The wine has a lovely purity and excellent freshness from the limestone based soil. On the nose, it has bright aromas of pure black fruit with a hint of vanilla. The palate is refreshing with bright acidity and subtle, round tannins, with blackcurrant notes on the finish.
