The climate in the Vallée du Layon is perfectly suited for the development of botrytus cinerea (noble rot). The cool, damp nights, morning dew and fog, alternating with warm, sunny afternoons ensure controlled growth of these fungi. This creates beautiful sweet wines with a unique, complex character.

The grapes for the Château Soucherie Coteaux du Layon Patrimoine are harvested at different times, selecting only the perfectly ripe grapes. After a soft pressing, spontaneous fermentation takes place using the natural yeasts, after which the wine matures for another 12 months in oak barrels. The result is a soft, slightly sweet wine with a nice balance between ripeness, sugars and fresh acidity. In the nose aromas of juicy citrus fruit and some ripe fruit, such as lychee. Pleasantly round and slightly sweet in taste with lively acidity. The wine is (well chilled) thirst-quenching and delicious as an aperitif.

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
