Winemaking Criteria

We patiently wait in order to get these yellow and very ripe Chenin Blanc grapes through sortings from October 15th to 20th, 2016. Pre-fermentation is carefully adapted (respect for the harvest, pre-fermentation maceration on a part of the cuvée, long and soft pressing, 2 meticulous settling...).

Fermentation is controlled for both parts, in stainless steel tanks and in oak barrels (yeasting, controlled temperatures : 17 to 19°C (62,6 to 66,2°F). We proceed to a long oak barrel elevage followed by blending in March 2018, in order to get the best expression of the Chenin Blanc.

A Sensory Experience

The canary yellow robe is very attractive, brilliant and bright with its golden hues. The nose is especially smooth and “gourmand”. The very ripe Chenin develops aromas of quince, peach and stewed apricot. It is then followed by lime tree and an elegance taste of oak and vanilla due to its perfectly well managed elevage. The mouth is smooth and long-lasting. The aroma complexity comes back with retro-olfaction, delivering white and yellow stewed fruits tastes, followed by a spicy note. A hint of alcohol and acidity reminds us its typical Loire Valley nature.

Wine and Food Matching

The aromatic features and the perfect balance of our Anjou Blanc "Ecume de Loire" allow you to create numerous matching. Think about:

  • Duck and Goose foie gras, sautéed or half -cooked
  • Fishes with their creamy reduction sauce
  • White meats (Veal, poultry, rabbit) with creamy sauce, some “ris de veau”, “Boudin blanc truffé”
  • Sautéed scallops with its creamy reduction sauce of Coteaux du Layon
  • Hard cheese (Comté…)

This wine, very pleasant already, will favorably evolve over 10 years minimum.
