“The Château de Plaisance is located on the Butte de Chaume, one of the most beautiful and only terroirs of Anjou classified 1er Cru. The vineyard has been run organically and biodynamically since 1995. Although the soils of Chaume are known for its beautiful sweet wines , Guy Rochais was the first to create a dry white: the famous “Chaume sec de Guy Rochais”. His creation earned him a fine for non-compliance with the AOC body and he has hence renamed it “The insolent”.
After 60 years at the helm of Château de Plaisance, the Rochais family have now sold the estate to a young winemaker: Vanessa Cherruau. Born and trained in Angers, she has practiced her winemaking in both France. Patricia Rochais first visit to the terroirs of the Château de Plaisance was love at first sight and in 2019 her very first vintage at Chateau de Plaisance was released.
