A leading single-vineyard red from a natural Cabernet Franc producer in the Loire Valley. Les Peuilles is a special site for this small family operation, a "lieu dit" near the village Beaumont-En-Véron where the soils are of flinty clay. The grapes are hand harvested then fermented naturally, after which they spend 6-12 months on traditional large format vessels of old oak and chestnut. With a subtle generosity but plenty of poise and minerality, the Les Peuilles is a delight.


Domaine Olga Raffault is unquestionably one of the long-time reference points for top-quality, traditional Chinon wines. Raffault is in the Véron, a wedge-shaped strip of land where the Vienne River intersects with the much larger Loire. Véron is temperate, humid and low-lying, with some small hills, and two main types of soil, one gravel-based and the other clay-limestone-based. Raffault farms parcels totalling 24 hectares of vines–23 planted to Cabernet Franc and 1 to Chenin Blanc—with vines averaging about 30 years.

The farming is certified organic and harvest is manual. This minimalist approach in the vineyard extends to the cellar. The fruit is destemmed, with the whole berries going uncrushed into tank for fermentation with native yeasts.


93/100 J. d'Angelo, International Wine Report, September 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"The 2018 'Les Peuilles' opens with inviting aromatics of raspberries, violets, smoldering ash, pepper and a lovely zesty character, which all take shape beautifully in the glass. The palate this medium-bodied is classy and refined, with a gorgeous silky texture and remarkable overall balance, with gorgeous underlying acidity that frames the fruit as it glides into the pretty finish. Overall, a simply sensational Cabernet Franc, which beautifully showcases its terroir."

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
