Domaine des Yolais

The present-day estate dates back to the 15th Century but vines have been cultivated at Château du Coing de St Fiacre since Roman times. The Chéreau-Carré family purchased the Château in 1973 and Véronique Gűnther-Chéreau, the eldest daughter, took over the reins of the estate in 1990. She is passionate about her region and its wines. Located at the confluence of the rivers Maine and Sèvre, and lying at the foothills of Massif Armoricain, with a southern exposure, the vineyards’ soils are mainly composed of a variety of different schist. The vineyard covers 40 ha, including 25 ha planted with vines that are over 80 years old.

100% Melon de Bourgogne / Organic 

The vineyard has an unusual terroir because its subsoil is composed of a volcanic rock: gabbro, covered with a layer of clay 40cm. The particularity of this soil gives these wines a minerality and a characteristic lemony note. This cuvee comes in three different labels: two of each in a case of 6, which symbolise terroir, wine and man.
