Château de Plaisance
Premier cru Chaume 2018
Coteaux-du-Layon 1er cru Chaume 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 hillside of the Chaume first growth.
Grape variety :
100% chenin from the Chaume hillock (schist, spilite, sandstone).
Aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months.
Tasting notes :
Abundant aromas around pear, candied apple and lemongrass, and especially a fascinating concentration of candied citrus. The exotic fruits are slowly starting to appear. The palate is very unctuous and fresh, with a nice finish of roasted pineapple. Tension, sapidity, mellowness, persistence!
Wine style :
Sweet white wine, fruity and deep.
Food and wine pairing :
Dim Sum of semi-cooked foie gras, granny smith apple and mirabelle plum chutney. Textured orange, crunchy, espuma and supreme.
Cellar ageing potential:
75 cl - 12,5 % volume
