Chateau De Coulaine Chinon
The Loire isn’t consistent as far as soil and terroir is concerned, which gives us wines from across the valley with entirely different personalities. This wine is from a small parcel of grapes grown on 20 year old vines on sand and limestone. When looking at a soil profile, limestone always tends to pop up when talking about bold Spanish Tempranillo, Burgundy, Chianti, and even Barrossa Shiraz. This is of the same stock, and has started it’s life with rich, fully developed grapes. Large (very large) 60 hecalitre oak vats aged this wine for a very subtle touch of oak and oxygenation. We’re looking at fresh, bright and rich black fruit through and through.
A regular bottle of wine barely makes it around the table at our dinner parties. The 1.5L Magnum bottle is the superior serving size, so we've made a monthly subscription service to celebrate. This is something quite special indeed.
Magnum Noir will feature a vast range of old world and new world red wines. Each selection is a mystery until it's on your doorstep, but you can expect Grenache, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Sangiovese and all manner of interesting blends and unusual varietals. We’re more about pure expression of fruit and place rather than over-oaking and over-ripeness when it comes to choosing the reds we like.
When you join this subscription service we'll send you one magnum of red wine every month. With a wealth of wine knowledge at our fingertips, and access to some of Australia's finest winemakers, we aim to curate a balanced selection of new world and old world wines for your drinking pleasure.
The nature of Magnums is that they are hard to come by, especially in large quantities. Please keep in mind that whilst we will only send out the highest quality wine we can source each month, the specific bottles you receive may vary from other club members. We see this as a feature, rather than a flaw - the more variety out there the better!
