Sur La Butte, Château de Plaisance


A rare, and excellent, Anjou red wine from a rising star of the Loire

Château de Plaisance is the project of rising star Vanessa Cherruau. Taking over the biodynamic estate in 2019, Vanessa works has 25 hectares of vineyards that straddle Chaume and Quarts de Chaume, where she produces bone dry Chenin from grapes otherwise destined for sweet wines.

The Plaisance estate has been certified organic since 1995, and Demeter certified Biodynamic since 2008. Since Vanessa took over the reins in 2019, she is working to go even further and the goal is to eventually reach carbon neutrality. Lightweight glass bottles (550g), natural corks and plant based dyes are used for the wines, as well as recycled paper and cardboard.

Vanessa has just 3 hectares of red grapes. As far as she can ascertain they are the only red grapes in the appellation. The vines are around 35 years old and this particular wine is made up of 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, mainly grown on Schist. Ageing is in concrete vats. The wine has aromas of bright red fruits, with hints of earthiness and spice. It is very easy to drink.
