Our vineyard is situated at St Aubin de Luigné in the heart of the AOC classification COTEAUX DU LAYON. Its south facing hillsides enjoy a privileged position that favours the ripening of our grapes.
Our vineyards and its wine have an "organic" Certification by ECOCERT.
The harvesting is done by hand; in order to select the best bunches of grapes to produce wines of quality. Our wines are aged in a natural way, without chaptalisation (The addition of sugar to juice beforeand/or during fermentation).
Our emblematic grape variety is of course Chenin Blanc, planted on our schisty soil hillsides overlooking the Layon.
Our three leading AOC classification :
- COTEAUX DU LAYON 1er CRU CHAUME, a well-ventilated clay-schistose soil whichcreates a sweet and unctuous white wine that grows in complexity over the years.
