Located on the right side of the Indre river, Château de l’Aulée and its cellars were built in 1856 by the Cordier family, a wine-merchant from Bordeaux. Champagne Deutz bought the domaine in 1973, restored it, drained soils and entirely replanted it with Chenin grape, on 37 hectares. As soils and grape variety are perfectly adapted to produce fine sparkling wines, the production of the domain was divided into still wines and sparkling wines. Marielle et Arnaud HENRION, Propriétaires du Chateau de l’Aulée since 2004, this is the love story of an oenologist and her husband from Touraine area and this outstanding vineyard. “We set up on the domain with a very strong idea in mind: growing high quality wines”. Oenologist from Champagne with work experience in some famous companies like Pommery, Bricout, Bollinger, Marielle wants to grow their vineyard and wines with good agricultural practices, respecting environment and the soil.
Subtle and delicate, richly expressive. Ripe notes of pear, fig and walnut with a lift of fresh acidity and an endless stream of bubbles.
