TerroirWhere does the wine come from
The terroir is the result of all of the factors in the vineyard's ecosystem: the soil, the subsoil, the climate, the topography and the wine grower.The Loire vineyards have developed with the diversity that is specific to its varied mixture of soils and the relief and different aspects of the land. Differences in terroirs are expressed very clearly in the great variety of wines, even when they are produced from the same grape variety.The Anjou region benefits from a mild, damp climate with a maritime influence. The Anjou is composed of primary schists, offering a highly diverse range of wines,
With it's bright golden colour, this noble late harvest (botrytis) awaken your senses with peach and apricot flavours before hinting to exotic fruits. Supple and round, the natural acidity of Chenin blanc assures a perfectly balanced finish for this sweet wine.
The grapes are hand picked and selected very late in the season. We have very low yield for our botrytis wines. The biggest part of the blend is fermented in stainless steel tanks and then blended with a small percentage of barrel fermented Chenin.
