Château de Plaisance

Sur la Butte 2020

Anjou AOP

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 vines on the Chaume hillock, which is original because it is mainly made from Cabernet Sauvignon and not from Cabernet Franc.

                    

Grape variety :

70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc from the Butte de Chaume (schist, spilite, phtanite).
Aged in concrete tanks for 11 months.


Tasting notes :

A very pure nose, expressing itself on red fruits with a slight spicy touch. What impresses most is the silky, fine and velvety mouthfeel. A wine that perfectly reflects its grape varieties (the two Cabernets) and its terroir in a style focused on finesse, minerality and just the right amount of maturity.

Wine style :

Fruity and complex red wine.

Food and wine pairing :

Grilled Bazas beef chuck with vine shoots, Noirmoutier potatoes. Roast pork with red cabbage and wild rice.

Ageing potential in your cellar :

10 years

Analysis :

75 cl - 12,5 % volume
