Notes from Bishop's Cellar:

"Chateau du Petit Thouars is a family run estate nestled in corridors of natural limestone caves in the Chinon appellation of the Loire Valley.  The property was deeded to the family by Cardinal Richelieu in 1636 and vineyards that surround the farm house were planted in 1975.  Today the 150 hectare estate is run by Sebastien du Petit Thouars (12th generation to dwell here since his ancestor George purchased the property in 1636) and his wife d’Arcy.

Tasting Notes: Bright and fresh on the nose with red berry aromatics, floral and some white pepper.  The palate is medium bodied with lots of crunchy red fruit, subtle earthy and mineral notes with medium to high acidity and light to medium ripe tannins."
