Domaine des Trottières in the Loire Valley: let's talk about it
Michael Taupin, can you introduce your vineyard?
"Founded in 1890, and Owned by the Lamotte family since 1985, Domaine des Trottières is in Thouarcé to the Heart of Loire Valley, Anjou & Coteaux du Layon Region. We produce 18 Wines in 9 AOP…
- Anjou Blanc – Coteaux du Layon – Bonnezeaux – Crémant de Loire (8 vins)
- Rosé de Loire – Rosé d’Anjou – Cabernet d’Anjou (5 vins)
- Anjou Rouge – Anjou Villages (5 vins)
The old winery, built in 1927, is still used and have been completed by a modern second winery built in 1990. For the wine-making process, we have been assisted for many years by the renowned oenologist Jean Michel Monnier, who has exceptional expertise in the wines of Anjou and the Layon Valley.
The wine-making procedures are highly diversified at Trottières. The Domaine's objective is to reduce the use of sulphur by combining tangential filtration and low temperatures (storage of the wines in tanks at 12°C).
Domaine des Trottières offers you the benefit of its acknowledged and consistently rewarded expertise, with a wide range of fine wines that combine respect for tradition with an innovative approach. The region's characteristics are combined with originality, respecting the heritage and traditions of our Terroir, while at the same time innovating for the pleasure of our customers.
