My name is Anne-Sophie
Welcome to Domaine BODINEAU.
We are situated in Anjou, south of the River Loire, between Nantes & Tours, and Cholet & Saumur, near the Châteaux de la Loire, Puy du Fou, Futuroscope and just next to Doué la Fontaine and its Zoo.
At the crossroad between the appellation Saumur and Anjou, the domain is located on the hillside; bordering the Layon river which flows into the Loire.
The soil is typical of this area. The main rock is Schist. As opposed to Doué la Fontaine and troglodytes with sand, we have a hard and dry soil, perfect for vine-stocks.
Some Wine (Wine list)
The most famous wine of Domaine Bodineau, awarded medal, is Coteaux du Layon « Fleur de Schiste », a sweet white wine, made of hand-picked Chenin grapes. Noble rot gives a deep structure with a good length on the mouth. A reflexion of our schist terroir, the wine balance comes from honey notes, and a syrupy savour. It marvellously marries foie gras or blue cheese.
Anjou-Village is a full-bodied red wine with tannins. Its smell has ripe and delicate fruit aromas (blackberry, blackcurrant). Its mouth is hearty, supple with a silky final. It will be perfect with meat (especially beef). This is a wine to keep, as it can age between 10 to 15 years.
The grape varieties we cultivate most are Chenin and Cabernet Franc, and we also grow Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Grolleau. The main part of the vineyard is hand-picked as Chenin needs to be selected manually to make our cuvees.
We make a lot of wine : Rosé Wine , Red Wine, White Wine, Dry, medium, sweet and syrupy, sparkling.
Our family estate
My brother and I are the proprietors. My grandmother comes from Les Verchers and my grandfather from Concourson, another village. That’s why we have 2 important places of the vineyard. Over generations, the family estate has evolved and grown to a present 40-hectare domain. Today, Frederic and I, brother and sister, offer you a big range of Coteaux du Layon and Anjou wines. 3 employees work with us and many seasonal workers. My brother makes the wine.
