Le Prieuré 2015 - Domaine du Prieuré, Val de Loire

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

I love the freshness of Loire Valley’s chenins. With a fresh goat cheese, it is absolutely delightful. And this chenin from Domaine the Prieuré just confirms that these wines can be amazing. Its nose displays nice aromas of flowers and granny. On the palate, the balance is amazing. The wine is indeed more characterized by its liveliness but it’s perfectly balanced thanks to its remarkable fruity aromas. 

 

Terroir

The vines are located on hillsides along the Layon River. They are planted on a schist soil. This kind of stone that looks a bit like a millefeuille allows the roots to go very far down the ground, up to eight meters deep ! Therefore, vines can get all the nutrients brought to the soil by the river : an ideal position to give complex and fresh wines.

lecepage Grape variety

Chenin is a variety that comes from Anjou and has spread all along the Loire River. It has long been harvested too early hence giving acidic wines, which explains why people are still suspicious today. However, thanks to all the improvements brought in the vines during the last decades, chenin can now give amazing white wines, whether those are dry, sparkling or sweet.

lemillesime Vintage

If the frost that happened at the end of April put a lot of uncertainty on 2016, winemakers in the Loire Valley can fortunately be really happy with the 2015 vintage. This year, the bud break was perfect and summer provided the right amount of heat and sun with regularity and without excess. Therefore, grapes were harvested perfectly ripened and gave concentrated and complex wines. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Domaine du Prieuré was taken over in 2012 by two oenologists, Dominique Sirot and Alexis Soulas, who felt in love with the Layon River. They left Corsica, where they used to work in large wine estates for several years, in order to settle in Anjou with their families. Nowadays, they cultivate their 21 hectares with passion and they show a lot of ambition. Everything seems to be working as everyone already talks about them in the region.
