This wine features among Anjou's most famous crus, and is made in the municipality of Thouarcé, approximately 20 km away from Angers. Made from over-ripened Chenin Blanc that is harvested in successive sorting processes, this fortified white wine owes all of its qualities to its exceptional home soil: three steep, small schist soil slopes with a full south-facing position. Easily affected by noble rot, the grapes produce rich wine with great complexity. Incredibly fragrant and bursting with sap, the Bonnezeaux is more supple than its Quarts-de-Chaume cousin. This wine is designed to be aged for vast periods of time, developing velvety notes of pineapple and apricot in its young stages, and developing a complex bouquet of creamy vanilla over time.
