Name: LaCheteau Cultivated hectares: 480 Address: Val de Loire (France)
Maison Lacheteau supervises around 100 carefully selected domains, covering all the appellations in Val de Loire. Our stringent quality standards are applied right down the line from wine-growing and winemaking to the bottling process. Maison Lacheteau runs several châteaux & domains, covering nearly 480 hectares of vines, including the prestigious Château de Fesles. The Château looks out over the river Layon, benefiting from a highly favourable climate for vine growing and early morning mists which encourage the growth of Botrytis, or noble rot. This is a key factor in making the Bonnezeaux appellation - the sweet wine that has made the Château so famous. In 1991, the estate was entirely renovated. Since then, the quality of its facilities has become a reference in Anjou as one of the most highly reputed estates in the region.
