Considered by many to be one of the finest producers in Chinon, Alliet is part of a new generation of Loire winemakers dedicated to low yields, optimally ripe fruit, and fastidious vineyard management. Inspired by the greatest wines of Bordeaux - a region he visits several times a year - he aims to create wines of similar structure and power.

Wine SpectatorEnergetic, with a brambly note underscoring the core of plum and black cherry fruit, while hints of bay leaf, anise and violet fill the background. Juicy and fresh. A terrific effort for the vintage. Drink now through 2017.
