In my last blog I described a visit to the home, workshop and boutique of Cosette FRÉVAL, Remy-sur-Creuse. While we were there Sandra and I were treated to a few glasses of excellent Rosé de Saignée produced by Cosette’s cousin, Charles Pain who lives near Chinon.
Domaine Charles Pain covers more than forty hectares of vineyards located on either side of the banks of the river “La Vienne” east of Chinon, in the communes of Panzoult, Cravant-les-Coteaux, Avon-les-Roches, Theneuil and Ile Bouchard.
Its location between hills and plains allows the use of varied the terraces: low terraces composed of sand and gravel to clay-siliceous high terraces.

The winery, at his farmhouse, de Chezelet. is open every day except Sundays and holidays from 8 am to 12 am and 2pm til 6pm.
I encourage you to visit – I don’t think you’ll be disappointed – let me know your verdict on M.Pain’s wines
