Château de Plaisance
France - Anjou
In the heart of the Anjou Noir region, in the Chaume, Quart de Chaume and Savennières terroirs, Plaisance has been organically farmed since 1995 and biodynamically since 2008.
Taken over from the Rochais family by Vanessa Cherruau, a young woman from Anjou in her thirties, Plaisance is a story of the heart: a place, a meeting, a soul. And the potential of this thousand-year-old terroir became obvious.
The adventure thus begins on September 12, 2019, with a baby in the belly and half a new team under the hood. A crazy project. An unconscious dream...
This cuvée comes from the vines of the Chaume first growth hillock. Under the impetus of several winegrowers in the appellation, Ronceray is the name given to the dry whites created in the Chaume Premier cru and Quarts de Chaume grand cru appellation, in homage to the abbesses of the Ronceray abbey, owners of the vines in the 11th century.
100% chenin from the Chaume hillock (schist, spilite, sandstone).
Partially aged in oak barrels (30% in tuns) for 12 months.
This wine is slender, saline, airy. The nose is fruity, with notes typical of Chenin (yellow fruit and exotic fruit). The palate is taut, sapid: it stretches out on a beautiful minerality. It is an ample and incisive wine, with a great minerality.
