Chateau Soucherie Chenin BlancTabula Rasa Shop
The Tijou family has a long history as "viticulteurs" in the Loire Valley region near Angers. In fact, they have practiced their craft, father to son, since 1780. The actual Domaine de la Soucherie was purchased from the Marquis de Brissac in 1952 and today, the entire production is estate-bottled.
The grapes, 100% Chenin Blanc, are sourced from the vineyard site “Les Rangs de Longue” which is on the northern part of the estate but with south-southeastern exposure. The soil is a mix of clay and sand and limestone with some schist. The wine is vinified totally dry and is aged on the fine lies for eight to nine months producing a refreshing wine, with flavors of exotic fruits and white flowers.
