Coteau des Treilles is a grand cru site in all by name. Once famous in the 19th century, this vertiginous site was entirely abandoned in the aftermath of phylloxera and two world wars. However, Jo Pithon’s historical knowledge of the best sites in the Anjou eventually led him to bring this terroir back to life. Now totaling 2.72-hectares, this resurrected monopole has full southern exposure and geologically complex soil. This hillside began as an ancient upwelling of magma that later became submerged under a shallow sea so that today when walking the vines, you will see volcanic bedrock and scree mixed with sedimentary limestone with thin patches of sandy or clay topsoils.
