The Story: The Ch√¢teau Soucherie may be the most physically beautiful property of all the domains with which we work. The house itself is aunique architectural gem that sits on a rise overlooking the 36 ha of vineyards that snake down towards the Layon river. Four of the thirty-six hectares are situated in the prime vineyard of Chaume and then two hectares are in Savenni√®res in a single-vineyard known as ‚ÄúClos des Perri√®res‚Äù. The remaining vineyards which encircle the ch√¢teau are in the Anjou and Coteaux du Layon appellations.Soucherie is surrounded by the villages of Rochefort-sur-Loire, Beaulieu-sur-Layon and Saint Lambert du Lattay.
