Chateau d'Avrille Coteaux de l'Aubance 2021 75cl

£15.95

Tasting Note

Made from Chenin Blanc, this is a lovely sweet honey and lemon aroma - really bright and clean. Delicate and fresh on the palate, with more of the honey. Less sticky than a lot of sweet wines, which makes this REALLY appealing. 

Producer

This estate was founded in May 1938 by Eusebe Biotteau and after 50 years of incredibly hard work, he became a figure in Anjou viticulture, notibly by having the idea of a tasting cellar which was the first of its kind here. Biotteau has been passing down his knowledge and his love of wine and vines to his sons and grandsons, and now it is the 4th generation that creates history at this Chateau. Over the years, the company has grown with the combination of modernity and tradition both being kept at heart. 

Located in the Loire Valley, an area known for its landscapes and monuments that are recognised by UNESCO as Outstanding Universal Value, the chateau is lucky to be close to the Loire river, the most eloquent in Europe, which flows in an exquisite environment privileged by the climate and terroirs. 

The chateau itself was built in 1730, overlooking the Aubance valley, using emblematic stones of the region and the house has survived this time through adopting the architecture of each of the eras it has belonged to, with elements dating from the 15th, 16th, 18th and 19th centuries. Engraved on the house is a latin phrase "Hic scientia et prudentia ducuntur omnia" which means "here by knowledge and wisdom all things are conducted".

They practive sustainable viticulture methods and are highly sensitive to biodiversity and the protection of nature and vines. The methods used are certified and controlled by the "High Environmental Value" label with the highest degree of the certification showing their commitment to the environment.
