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 2014 Anjou Villages "Les Saules de Montbenault"

Les Saules de Montbenault comes from an 0.80 hectares plot of chenin blanc, grown on rhyolite (volcanic rock), in Faye d'Anjou. Vine density in this vineyard is key, with only 5,000 vines per hectare, resulting in roughly 20 hectoliters per hectare. After an 8-10 hour long press cycle, the must is racked to 400L casks where the wine remains, sur lie, until bottling.
