The present estate date back from the 15th Century but vines were cultivated on this plot since Roman times. The Cherreau-Carre family purchased the Château in 1973 and Véronique Gűnther-Cherreau, the eldest daughter, took over in 1990. Passionate about her region and its wines.
Located at the confluence of the rivers Maine and Sevre, at the foothills of Massif Armoricain, with a southern exposure, the soils are mainly composed of different types of schists. The vineyard covers 40 ha, including 25 ha planted with vines that are over 80 year old. The yields are kept down to 50 hl/ha and “lutte raisonnée” is the preferred method of viticulture.
