Rating : Guide Hachette Quoted (Well-Made wine), Gold Medal Concours des Grands Vins de Loire 2016, Silver Medal Gilbert & Gaillard 
Les Chanteaux is a pretty exemple of a tasty and well-made Chinon : intense, forward, fresh and very aromatic with floral notes, minerality, citrus. It is a smooth and rich white wine, with refreshing and persisting aromas. A great wine to start a meal !

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Vineyard rated (guide 2020) : 2**Stars (A reliable production but a little more constant and homogeneous than the previous one)

About the vineyard : Sur les 2000 hectares du Chinonais, Couly-Dutheil vinifie 120 hectares dont 90 en production directe. Après le décès de Jacques Couly, son fils Arnaud, en place depuis déjà quelques millésimes est maintenant seul aux commandes. Le clos-de-l’olive et le clos-de-l’écho, les deux sommets de la cave, sont des vins de garde qui traduisent au mieux leur terroir argilo-calcaire. On joue plus pour le premier sur le registre svelte et profond et pour le second sur la puissance. La cuvée crescendo est réalisée quand le millésime s’y prête, avec parfois un boisé insistant. Ne pas négliger le « simple » chinon rené-couly qui est réalisé pour un plaisir plus immédiat.

Rating and review of M. FREDERIC M. Published on 25/06/2018
le chenin à inspiré tant de tendance (et quelquefois de mode) sur les terroirs de Loire... Que j'ai été surpris (et immédiatement séduit) par le grand classisisme de ce vin. C'est Plein, riche mais net, modulé... Allegro Ma non Troppo !

The château of Chinon, which overlooks the Vienne River, was a stopping place for many kings and princes, from the Plantagenets to Richelieu. In 1429 Jeanne d'Arc came here to ask Charles VII to reconquer France. It is also the birthplace of Rabelais, and his true history as well as fabled versions are carved into the local architecture and the landscape, making Chinon a pilgrimage site ...
