Domaine Philippe Alliet

Domaine Philippe Alliet

Domaine Philippe Alliet is one to reference for making 100% Cabernet Franc wines. The Domaine is situated in Cravant-les-Côteaux, home to arguably some of the best Cabernet Franc in the world. Founded in 1985, the Domaine is now run by Philippe's son, Pierre, who is revolutionising the Cabernet Franc scene in the Loire, focusing on low yields and meticulous vineyard management.

The oak regime has gone down from 100% new 225l barrels to a mere 20% new wood 500l barrels paired with much longer ageing of up to 20 months. This has drastically changed the style of the range and allows the wines to be approachable young whilst having great potential to age.

The Domaine produces one of the most exciting Chinon ranges in the Loire, spanning from their entry-level Chinon to their top-of-the-range Coteau de Noiré cuvee, located on steep coteaux and perceived as THE best plot in Chinon. Pierre emphasises the importance of sustainable and environmentally friendly viticulture practices, so he organically farms the 19 hectares of the Domaine.
