“Of all the wines in my Cellar (from) Anjou, Lorraine and Provence he first mentioned is the best” King René, France, 15th Century
The facades of Chateau Des Noyers were inspired by the nascent class of the 16th Century with features including balanced proportions, rigorous symmetry, fascia strip between stories, and vertical bay openings.
Listed in the additional survey of Ancient Monuments, the chateau also showcases watch towers built with shell-marl stone, a rare material found in the Anjou Region.
Located on the Layon riverside, the vineyards date back to the 17th century. The wines from the area surrounding the Layon River are renowned for their exceptional quality, with vineyards planted on the sloping hillsides and fossil-rich shell plateaux.
The main grape varieties cultivated at the vineyards include some of the best listed in the Anjou AOP. In particular, sweet wines crafted by the chateau such as the “Coteaux du Layon” has won many medals and accolades from reputed guidebooks and wine competitions. Check out our wines here.
