An expert's opinion

It's rare that I rate a wine 19/20, yet here we are! Once again, Christian Chabirand has proven that it's possible to produce fantastic wine in an inhospitable climate. His 2017 vintage is a true combination of passion and intelligence, and his Merlot in particular is outstanding; juicy, fresh and just a touch rugged. Too young? Not at all; simply too good!

The estate

Prieuré La Chaume

In 1997, Christian Chabirand made a leap of faith and acquired a plot of land near his family home, on an old island in the middle of Marais Poitevin, a marshy area in Western France. A surprising place to grow vines and yet, Christian's wine speaks clearly for itself!
