The winegrower :
"My family's winegrowing tradition started out with my great grandfather Coindreau. He was the first to grow vines at Berrie. He had several hectares, but also grew grain and kept a few farm animals. The estate has been handed down from father to son to 5 generations.


The vineyard estate is located in the commune of Berrie, in the southern part of the Saumur appellation.

The vines of Chenin blanc are planted on a rise with great southwest sun exposure overlooking the Dive river, which wends its way alongside the slope. These vines sink their roots deep into the clay limestone soil where the tufa is quite shallow.


Low yields (5-6 bunches per vine). Almost all plots are former clos, or walled vineyards, and a few of the walls are still standing. Many of these are bay trees pruned into a ball shape. One plot has a very old almond tree and a cherry tree. These trees protect the vines and enhance biodiversity.


The grapes are harvested when fully ripe. Gentle pressing and light settling of the must to preserve the aromatic potential. Traditional vinification with fermentation in vats where the temperatures are regulated (17-19°C).

The wine is aged on the lees for 4 months with regular bâtonnage (stirring). After bottling, it is stored in our 25-meter-deep cellars where it ages away from light and variations in temperature.


Pale gold color and silver hues. Charming nose with aromas of ripe fruits (pineapple, crystallized apricot) and mineral notes. On the palate, the attack is round, soft and well balanced with lovely freshness. A beautiful aromatic structure. The long aftertaste reveals subtle notes of mint.

Serve chilled (10-12°C). as an aperitif or this wine goes perfectly with grilled fishes, poultry with sauce and fine goat’s cheese (Chabichou).
