Chateau de la Guimonière

Coteaux du layon Chaume

AOC Anjou

AOC Cabernet d’Anjou


Château de la Guimonière covers an area of 19 hectares; a total of 16 hectares are planted with Chenin Blanc, appellation Coteaux du Layon, and 3 hectares are planted with red wines Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. These vineyards are perched over the Layon on southward-facing land of shale and sandstone. They awaken in autumn in the morning fog, later warmed up by the sun's rays, thus benefiting from an ideal microclimate for developing overripe harvests. 
Depending on the climate and the ripeness of the grapes, the 16 hectares of Chenin Blanc can either produce a dry white Anjou or a Coteaux du Layon Chaume. On the 3 hectares planted with red grapes are produced a red Anjou and Cabernet d'Anjou.
