'Notre jardin', that's how this small vineyard in the Savennières is called at Château Soucherie. The Clos des Perrières is only 1.8 hectares in size, but has an enormous diversity in soil composition: the grapes grow on a substrate of sand, volcanic rock, slate and granite. This diversity creates a complex wine with a wide range of aromas.

After the manual harvest, the grapes are gently pressed, after which the juice ferments in 500 liter oak barrels. A 9-month lyre aging makes the wine rounder and gives it refinement. In the glass, the Château Soucherie Clos des Perrières has a very light golden yellow color with a hint of gray. Fresh and aromatic on the nose, with notes of citrus, hazelnut and almond and a striking minerality. In the taste, the wine is complex and layered, with concentrated fruit aromas, mineral notes and lively acidity. This wine enhances and enhances the taste of the dishes. Surprising with sushi and sashimi (careful with ginger and wasabi) and lightly smoked salmon. Delicious with thin slices of raw scallops with oscietra caviar and oyster leaf or oyster tartare, whether or not accompanied by some asparagus tips. Older wines call for hearty sea fish or veal in a creamy sauce.

About Chateau Soucherie

Château Soucherie owns 28 hectares of vineyard on which Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc are planted. The Anjou Blanc, Rouge and Villages Rouge are made from this. In addition, the domain has vineyards in Coteaux du Layon (including the premier cru Chaume) and in Savennières (Clos de Perrières). At the moment the château is still in conversion to full organic viticulture, for which the house will receive official certification in 2022. Read more under the tab: Winery
