In this highly-decorated Loire valley appellation, the domain has produced a Chenin which has been cultivated in an environmentally friendly way, without agricultural inputs. The grapes are harvested in several passes; the wine is then matured for nine months in 500-litre casks, followed by nine months in tanks on fine lees. Tasting reveals a golden appearance and an extremely pure aromatic bouquet. There are attractive notes of citrus and white fruit, combined with a subtle woodiness. The finish is long, with attractive bitter notes. A wine made for keeping, to be enjoyed after at least ten years in the cellar.

Savennières Clos des Perrières Château Soucherie serve at a temperature of 8°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Tagliatelles aux cèpes, Camembert tiède au caramel poivré, Filet de veau rôti à la moutarde à l'ancienne.

    Information about domain Château Soucherie

    Seasoned businessman and lover of wine and wide open spaces, Roger-François Béguinot decided one day to invest in this domaine in the Loire. He bought Château Soucherie in 2007 and renamed it Domaine. Located 25km from Angers, it boasts 28 hectares of Savennières, Coteaux-du-Layon, Anjou and Chaume appellations. Assisted by his young technical director Thibaud Bodignon, he is giving a new lease of life to his soil and vines. Together, they are producing unpretentious wines which are perfectly true to type. The reds are sought after for their deliciously juicy, crisp and indulgently rich profile. They have risen to the challenge with great flair, and quality is rising year on year. Definitely a vineyard to watch very closely!
