Philippe Alliet's 'L'Huisserie' comes from a two hectare parcel. This is a serious Chinon showing lovely depth and complexity. Very clean and pure on the nose with lively red and black fruits and a distinctive sense of terroir, earthy. This wine is aged for 18 months in oak barrels. The palate is quite textured and appealing leading into a dry and savoury finish with lovely minerality. Depth of flavour, great length, yet wonderful finesse and elegance. It will continue to age magnificently. If premier crus were permitted in Chinon, 'L'Huisserie' would certainly be considered one of them.
