Château de Bois Brinçon

One of the oldest producers in Anjou, dating back to 1229, this property has been in the hands of the Cailleau family since 1891, with Xavier and his wife, Géraldine, representing the 5th generation. The Château and its vines sit alone close to the pretty hamlet of Blaison-Gohier, which literally straddles the tectonic plate that divides ‘black’ Anjou from ‘white’ Anjou on the Loire’s south bank. Xavier runs the property according to organic principles.

Tasting Notes

Colloquially known as Chenin Noir, this grape is easy to recognise due to its big berries and red stalks. Light in colour and super aromatic, flavours of pepper and gingerbread complement the delicious fruit intensity. A lovely wine!

Food Matches

A delicious accompaniment to green salads, mushrooms, beans and truffle.
