Very shocked and sorry to hear last evening of the death of Jacques Couly, the PDG of Couly-Dutheil – one of Chinon’s largest producers – during the night of Friday/Saturday morning. Jacques was not only major figure both in Chinon but also in Loire wine.
It was very sad that his later years saw a bitter split with his elder brother Pierre Couly.
I will long remember Jacques for his enthusiasm, his kindness and his engaging smile.
Our thoughts and condolences to Arnaud, Jacques’ son, and the rest of the family.
