Château de Bois-Brinçon

Loire | Anjou | Blaison-Gohier

“The vigneron gets life from the vineyard and gives life to the vineyards,” believes Xavier Cailleau. He and his wife Géraldine live and breathe this philosophy at the family’s Château de Bois-Brinçon. The domaine dates to 1219, when it was founded by the Saint Jean d’Angers Hospital in the heart of Anjou. Xavier and Géraldine have led a deeply thoughtful conversion of all their vineyards to biodynamic farming, in the belief that “the right gesture at the right time in permanent awareness of respect for nature” is the key to making wines that express their mosaic of varied terroirs.

Château de Bois-Brinçon 2016 Anjou Rouge Chemellier "La Seigneurie"

La Seigneurie comes from three hectares of cabernet franc, planted on tuffeau terroir of the Turonian. The vines, with an average age over 40 years, benefit from an open landscape with favorable amounts of sunshine. The grapes are destemmed and macerate anywhere between 8 to 21 days, helping extract gentle tannins. After fermentation in cement, the wine is pressed and racked to stainless steel for 12 months, followed by additional aging in neutral barrel for 6 months.
