Estate Grown

Our estate has 11 hectares (27 acres) of Chenin blanc.

We are privileged to have and to work with Chenin blanc in Anjou, a varietal that does extremely well with dry whites, sparkling and sweet wines and expresses its terroir with the different veins of soils expositions and slopes.

We propose 6 dry white wines on 6 different soil types. We are one of the few winegrowers that can provide this range.

Estate grown sweet wines

The botrytis cinerea is a fungus responsible for the famous noble rot and is present in the fall months on the vines and allows us to produce sweet and very sweet wines.

Coteaux du Layon 4 Vents 80 grams
Coteaux du Layon Pierrebise 120 grams
Coteaux du Layon Belargus des Treilles 150 à 200 grams
