About the maker
The impeccable work of Patrice Colin in the Loire, sticking to wild yeasts, mastering temperature, using well integrated oak, all gives way to long ageing potential wines and those that can be easily sipped with delicate dishes.
The domaine of Patrice Colin- 27 hectares- is located in Thoré, close to Vendôme, in Touraine. Planted on clay-with-flints soils, the Pineau d’Aunis vines- some of them dating back to 1890- the Chenin (close to 80 years old), Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay, makes for incredibly pure wines marked by terroir and balance. A great winemaker, in love with his work, shy but efficient, in an appellation zone of the Loire Valley unfortunately not very well known and yet with exceptional value.See the Domaine Patrice Colin collection here
