Château de Bonnezeaux is bringing the historic sweet wine vineyards of the Anjou back to life with its spellbinding, dry Chenin Blancs. Gaining a cult-like following, Guyonne Saclier de la Bâtie’s wines have garnered a must-have status almost overnight. Concentrated and richly layered, a result of meticulous late harvesting, they are balanced by Chenin’s hallmark acidity and saline minerality. ‘Frimas’ – an increasingly popular part-négociant cuvée – offers unrivalled finesse and value, but it is the single-parcel wines, ‘La Montagne’, ‘La Minée Haute’, and ‘Coquerie’ that are the apogee of the estate.

From another new plot on the estate, 'La Minée Haute' is a shale and gravel site located at the bottom of the valley. Voluptuous and expressive of candied apple, ripe lemon, honey, and chamomile, the richness is kept in check by the fine mineral backbone and tingling acidity.
