The estate is located at the top of the hillside bordering river La Loire and is thus the highest point of the Roche aux Moines. It enjoys a favourable microclimate and the sloping vineyard is particularly well exposed to south/south-west side of hillside. Domaine aux Moines vineyard offers the best, thanks to its exceptional location and exposition There is a micro-climate at the Domaine, thanks to its privilege orientation and ideal sunny location, sheltered from northerly wind and close to river La Loire that forms a huge water reservoir, enabling temperature regulation, neither too low in winter, nor too high in summer, and under the nearby Atlantic ocean influence, with no frost most of springs, that allows our vineyard those ideal growing circumstances.

Dry, but with strong smells of honey and bees wax when first opened. Taste of honey, wax and parchment evident, as well as "sugar-less pineapple". Honey becoming less dominant as the wine breathes, with preserved pear and slighly darker notes becoming evident. Beautiful with goat's cheese.
