Château de Fesles which is in the village of Thouarcé was built nearly 1000 years ago on the summit of one of the four hills that now make up the Bonnezeaux appellation and is, without doubt, the best known estate in the area.
A blend of 30% Gamay and 70% Grolleau sourced from 50ha of vines in the heart of the Layon region.
The Siliceous-clay hillsides have an excellent south/south-west exposure. 100% of the harvest is destemmed, then macerated for several hours in the press. Vinification at 18°C in stainless steel vats.
floral and fruity explosion of red (strawberry, raspberry) and dark (blackberry, blueberry) fruits. A smooth initial mouth-feel confirms the aromatic richness, a tangy and lightly caramelised finish express great harmony.
perfect accompaniment to mixed salads, grilled white meat, poultry and fish, and is wonderful to drink on its own on a summer afternoon
