Philippe Alliet with his wife Claude work 17 hectares of vines in and around their village of Cravant-les-Coteaux in the Chinon appellation. The only producer in Chinon to land two stars in the Revue de Vin de France's prestigeous Classement, Alliet uses no chemicals, plows his vineyards continuously is a minimalist in the cellar. He believes that the wines are made in the vineyard.

The grapes are destemmed completely followed by a long fermentation, but not by an extended maceration. The wines are never drying, and Alliet believes that wine should taste good in the first year and in the 10th year. The result is astonishing with huge extraction, perfectly balanced fruit, tannins and acidity to make the wines approchable in their youth, but able to age forever.
