Production

Made from selected parcels of old-vine grapes, their better exposure to sunlight gives this wine greater concentration and complexity. Soils are of shell-rich, flinty clay from the Kimmeridgian period, located on the Saint-Andelain hill, overlooking the Loire. The Bouchié family was the first to plant vines on the hill of Saint-Andelain, seeing the potential of its soil, and the vineyards back onto those of Didier Daguenau. The grapes were gravity fed into the progressive pneumatic press. There was static must settling, skin maceration and thermo-regulated fermentation in stainless steel for 3 weeks to preserve aromatics and fruit expression. Selected tanks were kept on their fine lees after blending.

Tasting notes

The top cuvée from Bouchié-Chatellier sourced from selected grapes grown on an outcrop of silex soil. Ripe, herbaceous aromas, nettle and dill, balanced by concentrated green fruit and crisp citrus acidity. It has a lovely chalky texture on the palate afforded by extended skin contact which beautifully complements the richness. The wine will benefit from ageing for 4-5 years.

Food match

Serve chilled with white fish, such as seabass, served in a light sauce.
