Domaine du Petit Clocher is located in Anjou in the heart of Haut Layon between the main roads of Saumur, Angers and Cholet. The vineyard is located at the crossroads of the two geological zones: the Armorican Massif and its schists bringing a beautiful minerality appreciable for its whites and the end of the Thouet catchment area made up of eruptive rocks giving the terroirs a great precocity resulting in beautiful maturities in the wines and compiled aromas, terroirs planted mainly in red. The estate is in sustainable agriculture and respects its environment by using no chemical fertilizers and by grassing every other row to compete with the vine and control yields. The signature of the domain is undeniably Anjou Rouge and the many awards prove it.
Stéphane, Julien and Vincent are the fifth generation of the family estate that was created in 1920. This passion for their profession increases a desire to always surpass oneself and to obtain a constant quality to their wines. Since April 2016, the estate has left the historic site to take place in a new modern cellar and a more spacious tasting cellar that is ideal for welcoming its customers. Always in this desire to evolve, an oenotourism offer has been created; by proposing a complete visit of the estate and the reception of groups.
The profession of winegrower is a vocation for each of the Domaine's partners. The diversity of the wine world has allowed each member of the estate to express himself fully giving a successful association. A recent meeting with Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger was a source of inspiration for the continuity of the estate. The self-denial of this passionate person has made it possible to revive a family pride while keeping the values of a company with its feet anchored in tradition but its eyes turned towards the family.... In short, a great example to follow!
The last bottles of Coteaux du Layon 1947, hidden and carefully guarded by Maurice Denis, Vincent's grandfather, Stéphane and Julien, and tasted during family meals with long debates on the evolution of viticulture, are moments of intense pleasure... Which unfortunately came to an end when we learned that we had drunk the last one! Our wines are the result of a constant technical upgrading of our know-how. Our geological positioning has also done a lot in the recognition of our red wines. Maurice Denis, had the idea to plant a lot of Cabernet Franc in the 1950s on early terroirs giving us today aromas of fresh red fruits, intense with beautiful materials. The conviviality and meetings between winegrowers or with our customers are the result of all our work. The passionate exchanges over a glass of wine and the training of an attentive listener are the flame that sustains our passion and drives us to always surpass ourselves from year to year to make the best of each vintage.
