Soil and terroir
Schist soils on the slopes of the village of Chaume. Temperate oceanic climate with very slight variations in temperature – the mild climate for which Anjou is renowned. Grown on Ronceray vine plots, this wine is produced on the same plots as such appellations as Chaume Premier Cru and Quarts de Chaume Grand Cru, two terroirs producing “grands vins”.
Grape variety and know-how
100% Chenin Blanc.
The grapes are picked when fully ripe just before the appearance of “noble rot”. Ageing in acacia barrels along 10 months.
This wine has all the typical characteristics of the Chenin Blanc grape. The robe shines with glints of gold. The nose combines the aromas of apricot and acacia flowers. Harmonious on the palate. Vin de garde which will begin to develop all its qualities now and continue over the next eight years. At it’s best when served with fish from the river Loire.
To be served between 10°C and 12°C.
