Jérôme Billard took up the reins at this estate from his father in 2003, having returned from oenology studies in Dijon via stints at Château Pétrus and Dominus Estate in Napa Valley. He is making great strides in Chinon, the wines now being certified organic. His charming Les Temps des Cerises cuvée is from Cabernet Franc grapes sourced from across the domaine, fermented and matured in stainless steel vats. Mid ruby colour, aromas are attractive, with notes of cassis and freshly cut herbs. Palate is medium bodied and lively, with good concentration of fruit, and a fresh, vital finish.
