The wine is fermented and matured in stainless steel tanks. Focus here is on purity of fruit.
Domaine de Noire is a renowned wine, located in a place called Noire classified 1st Cotes de Chinon at the beginning of the 20th century.
In 2001, Odile and Jean-Max bought the Domaine de Noire and since then have made every effort to restore it to its original reputation. At the service of wine for more than three generations, the passion for the vine guides their daily work.
With the help of Olivier, a long-time companion, they take care of the land and bring the vines to give the best of the Chinon terroir. The Domaine's philosophy is to offer wines of high expression, representative and faithful to the place where they were born.
