Chateau De Fesles
When it comes to Bonnezeaux Chateau de Fesles is intrinsically wound so tight with the virtual fabric of the appellation. To put it in context of the greater region Bonnezeaux sits on the south side of the Loire River with its neighbour Quarts de Chaume, Loire’s only Grand Cru AOP (brought to fame in particular by Domaine de Baumard) just a few kilometres North West, also bordering the Layon, the smaller tributary of the Loire. Going East of the appellation you find Anjou AOP and further still Saumur Champigny. As with many of the great sweet wines produced around the world the relationship to this small river is key in forming the precise microclimate required for botrytis (Noble rot) to occur on the grapes.
