    Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Clos de l’Hospice 2019, a labor of love helmed by winemaker Rodolphe Raffault, is a captivating expression of the renowned Cabernet Franc from the Loire Valley’s Chinon region.

    In the glass, it unveils a deep, inviting garnet hue, foreshadowing the richness to come. The nose is an intoxicating blend of cassis and sloes, with a delightful floral lift of violets. This wine transports you to a south-facing natural amphitheater overlooking the Vienne river and the majestic Chateau de Chinon.

    As you savor this gem, the palate comes alive with fresh acidity that dances alongside subtle notes of pepper and exceptional minerality. It’s a symphony of flavors that lingers gracefully, leading to a silky, enduring finish. Clos de l’Hospice’s small production is a testament to the dedication to preserving tradition, with pre-1939 ‘selection massale’ vines ensuring historical authenticity.

    Critical acclaim bestows upon it 92 points by Wine Spectator, lauding its fuller-bodied yet elegant nature. Cherry and raspberry intermingle with layers of graphite and smoke. The wine’s intensity builds, revealing nuances of singed alder, incense, and fruit leather. It’s earthy, energetic, and underpinned by fine-grained tannins, promising aging potential until 2027.

    Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Clos de l’Hospice 2019 embodies the spirit of its historic vineyard and the dedication of its winemaker. This Cabernet Franc is a testament to tradition and a treasure for those seeking a remarkable journey through the vineyards of Chinon.
