Domaine Cady

Since 1927, four generations of the Cady family have run this estate, with Alexandre Cady most recently taking over from his father, Philippe.

Situated in the hills of Coteaux du Layon, an appellation by the Layon River in the Loire’s Anjou region, there are 22 hectares under vine. The majority of these are chenin blanc, planted on some of the finest schist, quartz and Varennes stone slopes of Saint-Aubin and Chaume, as well as a chunk of cabernet franc and small amounts of gamay, chardonnay and grolleau.

Grapes are harvested by hand, with the chenin blanc for the Coteaux du Layon undergoing several pickings to select only the ones affected by the right level of noble rot.

In the winery, the grapes are vinified in temperature-controlled glass-lined underground vats for freshness, after which the wine matures on its lees, adding richness and a concentrated creamy texture to the fruity, honeyed character.
