The Domaine du Collier was created in 1999 by Antoine Foucault (the son of Charly Foucault from Clos Rougeard) and Caroline Boireau. Over the past 19 years Antoine and Caroline have quietly been making some of the most exciting wines in the Loire Valley. The wines have gained a cult following in France for their level of depth and sophistication and are very hard to find! This beautiful wine is made from old vine Chenin Blanc grown in the La Charpentrie vineyard on the hillsides of Brézé.

About the wine

Tasting notes

Thrilling, complex scents of lime, flowers and pineapple give way to a brightly citric, concentrated palate, underpinned by chalky, mineral elements. This has power and tension than sets it apart from the Saumur Blanc and is simply a wine for the ages. This rare bottling is one of the great white wines of France.

The Grape

Chenin Blanc

Chenin Blanc is a white grape variety most famous for the beautifully lean and mineral expressions that come out of the Loire Valley in France and the rich and sweet expressions from South Africa. The wines are very aromatic and fruit forward, with flavours of quince, pear, yellow apple, chamomile and honey and can be made in a diverse range of style from sparkling, to lean and mineral, all the way to rich and even fortified. Chenin Blanc is quickly becoming a first choice for lovers of complex and fruity white wines and we think it's only the beginning for this amazing grape.
