L'Effraie is a beautiful expression of the Chenin grape and strikes an excellent balance between velvety and mineral. Note that depending on the year this wine will be dry or off-dry. More info

This cuvée is made with Chenin cultivated on a terroir of clay, flint and tuffeau. The berries are harvested by hand and vinified naturally in second, third, or fourth fill barriques. After this, the wine is matured for one year in the same containers. It has complex aromas of white fleshed fruits, white flowers, and sweet spice. The velvety palate is driven by the same flavours, and above all, a striking mineral quality that gives the wine length and finesse.

Coteaux du Loir Domaine de Bellivière L'Effraie Christine et Eric Nicolas serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Salade de museau de porc à la vinaigrette, Rougets grillés à l'huile de noix, Carpaccio de lotte.

    Information about domain Domaine de Bellivière

    Domaine de Bellivière was founded by Éric and Christine Nicolas in 1995, with 5.5 hectares of vines in Coteaux-du-Loir. They gradually expanded their vineyard, buying parcels in the Jasnières appellation until their holdings amounted to a dozen hectares. In 2015, their son Clément has joined them in the vineyard. A wonderful address and a must for anyone looking to rediscover the forgotten terroirs of Sarthe.
