2020 Domaine du Closel - Château des Vaults - Loire, Savennières - 6 Bottles (0.75L)

6 bottles of Savennières by Domaine du Closel - Château des Vaults. The vintage is 2020. The Savennières Appellation is a Grand Cru from the Loire Valley, located 15 km southwest of Angers. It is a small area appellation: 156 ha and 36 winegrowers. Highly appreciated by sommeliers, merchants, importers and wine merchants, and passionate amateurs, it still remains confidential and produces a rare wine (very low yields): 4000hl/year. It extends over three schist hillsides located on the right bank of the Loire opposite the Layon. It certainly constitutes the most fascinating terroir of the Loire Valley. The Château des Vaults vineyards are located on hillsides perpendicular to the Loire, benefiting from an exceptional southwest exposure. The nature of the soil there is extremely complex and therefore perfect for producing great wines. These soils are shallow, very warm and consist of purple and green shales as well as purple sandstones and volcanic rocks (quartz, phtanites, and organic materials). The AOC Savennières decree presents very strict standards regarding cultivation and winemaking practices. Chenin Blanc is the only authorized grape variety, the manual harvest is done carefully by sorting for very low yields. These wines are very ageworthy and deliver more complex aroma's after 5 to 10 years of aging. --- Château des Vaults: The Château des Vaults was built in the 17th century and remodeled in the 19th century. The park with its current design was created around 1850. The property was in the hands of figures from the upper bourgeoisie of Angers, then of the prestigious family of Nantes shipowners: the Walsh, Count of Serrant. Later, in the 19th century, the family of Emmanuel de Las Cases, biographer of Napoleon, inherited the estate. Since that day, Château des Vaults and its vines have been managed by the descendants of Las Cases. A line of women winegrowers was born, starting with Marque de Las Cases, wife of Closel. Her niece, Michèle Bazin de Jessey, developed the vineyard and created the operating company: Les Vins Domaine du Closel, with which she involved her two children. It is currently his daughter, Evelyne de Pontbriand, who manages the property and who has greatly developed the wine tourism activities at the Château, exports and who has converted the estate to organic and now biodynamic agriculture. The single bottles will be shipped to you in a secure, protective packaging to prevent damage.
