Our tremendous terroir
Approximately 28 hectares of vines is divided into three sites:
- Around the Château, 22 hectares are located on a south-facing hillside shale and sheltered from the north winds. Among our vines, Chenin represents the majority and is expressed alone and without blending through our Anjou White and of course the Coteaux du Layon. For our Anjou Reds and Anjou Villages, Cabernet Franc is grown on the hillsides. The very local and amazing Grolleau brings fruity roundness to our rosés and forms part of our Rouge Carmen blend where Gamay also surprises with its crispness and freshness.
- 4 hectares devoted to Chaume, this sweet wine whose fresh finish is so typical of the Loire Valley. There our vines are over 70 years old and their deep roots enable them to bring forth all the richness of this complex soil.
- The Clos des Perrières and 1.8 hectares at Savennières are what we like to call "our garden". On this sloping plot, outcrops of shale rock bring a fine minerality to the wine.
