The Olga Raffault Chinon is a delightful blend, with one-half being rosé de saignée and the other half obtained through direct-press after a 12-hour maceration on the skins. The slow, low-temperature fermentation with wild yeasts adds to its distinct character. Grown on gravel soils, the wine benefits from an enhanced density of fruit, resulting in an elegant, well-balanced, and slightly more ripe and flavorful profile compared to the 2021 vintage.
Its lovely bright pink color is accompanied by alluring hints of raspberry and strawberry fruit. On the palate, it offers a refreshing and very dry experience, showcasing the ripeness of the 2022 vintage, with a delightful touch of peach and red berries lingering in the finish. Crisp saline acidity further elevates its charm. The label aptly describes it as "Particulièrement gouleyant," and we wholeheartedly concur. This wine is an exquisite choice for a delightful drinking experience.
