Description

From 35 years old vines on a gravelly soil to a depth of about 35cm, resting on shale regolith. After a cold maceration, the fermentation takes about 20 days for the Cabernet Franc and 10 days for the Grolleau. The wine continues its ageing on lees for 9 months without extraction.

Tasting note

Beautiful intense purple colour. The nose expresses nice ripeness while retaining the graphite expression of a shale soil. The complexity comes from hints of blackcurrant, menthol and licorice. The whole is thus consistent with a Loire identity apparent in this mineral definition. The palate is open and digestible. It is defined by a full-bodied and sappy structure without excess alcohol. The whole is pleasant and cool by the quality of the fruit; the tannins provide a good persistent length. The tannins, while slightly prominent, are well integrated into the whole.

About the producer

The majestic Château Soucherie’s historic 28 hectare estate lies just 20 minutes south of Angers, producing wines from Anjou, Savennières, Coteaux du Layon and Chaume. Owned and run by Pascale and Roger-François Béguinot, their team works with immense care and dedication, guided by respect for the natural balance of the soils and their vines. All of the work of the vineyards is carried out manually: from stripping to budding, and canopy management to harvesting. The resulting wines are superb, each expressing the authenticity, richness and diversity of their different soils.
