The Society's Chinon 2022
Red Wine from France - Loire
Made for us by Maison Bougrier in the young, fresh 'brasserie' style we have been enjoying for a few vintages now, this deeply coloured cabernet franc has aromas and flavours of red and black fruits and a clean, juicy finish. It is the fruits of which the wine is so redolent that adorn the label. The wine captures the fresh style of contemporary cabernet franc, and provides a match when enjoyed with classic bistro-style dishes like rotisserie chicken, rosemary-scented lamb cutlets, or a simple picnic of charcuterie and good cheese. Chill slightly to enjoy at its best!

Maison Bougrier is a successful family-owned négociant company in the Loire founded in 1885 now run by the fifth generation of Bougriers. The company has significant domaine and winery holdings in three major areas: Touraine, Anjou and Muscadet giving it full control over vineyards, grapes and production in a number of sites.
The Touraine area produces whites from both chenin blanc and sauvignon blanc grape varieties. Bougrier’s premium white from Touraine is made from 100% sauvignon blanc grapes and was originally labelled for us as The Society’s Touraine Sauvignon, now sold under the Les Hauts Lieux label.
Domaine Guénault is one of the family’s own properties and situated on steep slopes overlooking the Cher river, which gives the grapes excellent sun exposure. The sauvignon here is grassy and scented and a popular choice as an aperitif.
