About

Discovering Terra Vita Vinum, like a few of the estates we have introduced during Covid19 has come by word of mouth and research rather than visiting in person which has unfortunately not been possible. In any case I am delighted to have discovered this gem of an estate practically at the start of it life. Luc Briand and Bénédicte Petit have breathed energy and passion into the Domaine Richou, located in the Anjou Noir and renamed it Terra Vita Vinum. Anjou Noir is a geological unit composed mainly of rocks that have been subjected to constraints (folds, faults, magmatic intrusions, metamorphism) related to orogenesis (mountain range formation) the wines produced here are very unique and celebrated.

The domaine has seven different parcels, all diverse geographically Bigottière (Savennières); Pavillon; Gabouchons/Violets; Rogeries; Grand Vau; Châteliers/Chant de la pierre; Chauvigné - all bottled separatley.

These are wines that fit perfectly into our list of superb Loire vigenrons and represent nirvana for fans of purity and minerality in Anjou Noir Chenin Blanc! - Importer Note


Tasting Notes

Réau is a small parcel, composed of sandy-clay silt, the soil is characterized by its metamorphic rocks (quartz banks and veins) and the vines are very old, this wine was fermented an aged in 600lt demi-muid and left on lees for 18 months total elevage. This wine stands out, it's ripe and intense yet very pure with a refined and refreshing mineral bouquet with beautiful notes of crushed rocks and citrus. It's tight and pure on the palate, this is an intense and complex Chenin to age! - Importer Note
