Overview

Écharderie is a southwestern-facing lieu-dit where the cellars of the seigneurs de la Haute Guerche were once located. Domaine Belargus farms 0.35-hectares of Chenin Blanc planted on a mix of schist, alterite, and puddingstone soils. Écharderie is the epitome of what Coteaux du Layon Chaume 1er Cru should be. Écharderie is a wine of density verging on opulence but also with remarkable poise with enlivening acidity and lash of minerality.
