Chateau d’Avrille Coteaux de l’Aubance 2021

12.5% abv

Vol- 75cl

Moelleux style – pretty aromas of sun-warm fruit peel ann orchard breeze. Good richness of candied fruit and honey dancing towards a delicate finish of citrus grace and lime blossom.

Located along the banks of the Aubance, a tiny stream that meanders its way towards the Loire south of Angers, it tends to be overshadowed by the larger and better-known vineyards of the Layon, which run broadly parallel. Both appellations produce sweet wines made exclusively from Chenin, but the vineyards of the Aubance are located on the same black-Anjou schist as Savennières on the opposite side of the Loire.

The Château d’Avrillé is situated just outside the town of Brissac. It’s an ancient property that sits on the side of the historic Roman road that connected Angers to Poitiers. The current edifice dates from the XVI and XVII Century, although it looks a little neglected. The château has been in the hands of the same family since Eusèbe Biotteau purchased it in 1938. He was still alive when the wine below was harvested. Something of a legend in these parts, Eusèbe built-up their enterprise to incorporate a total of 120 hectares of vineyards scattered across several Anjou appellations.
The Coteaux de l’Aubance was awarded AC status in 1950 and with only 180 hectares planted, it remains one of the Loire’s most confidential appellations.
