Winemakers from Loire Valley for Five Generations

More than a century of passion and winemaking know-how was the main aim for wine production in Domaine de la Belle Étoile. Vincent Esnou is the 5th generation of his family to make wine in this sunny spot in the Loire Valley. He got his experience in different wineries South Africa and the United States and combine it with the knowledge that his own father passed to him. He finally took over the family business and become the winery owner in Brissac-Quincé in 2008. Vincent has continually added new methods to their wine production improving at every step of the process.

Appellations of Domaine de la Belle Étoile

From 23 hectares of vines, they produce nine wines—reds, whites, rosés and sparkling wines. The vineyard locations come under several appellations of the Middle Loire. These include Cabernet d’Anjou, Anjou Villages Brissac, and Côteaux de l’Aubance. The latter is an area to the south of Anjers made up of ten communities including Brissac-Quincé. All white grapes here are Chenin blanc which produce slightly sweet wines.

Great Wine from Exceptional Wine Producer

For red wines, they grow Cabernet Franc on different terroirs—mainly limestone, clay and marl. For white wines, the vines are Chenin and Sauvignon blanc. The winery produces two sparkling wines, one a rosé from Cabernet Franc and Grolleau, the other is white from Chenin Blanc. An equal blend of Pineau Aunis and Gamay from clay-silt terroir makes up the Tenderness Anjou Rosé. Pineau Aunis is an indigenous grape of the Loire region. Their other rosé that the winery produces is made entirely from Cabernet grapes. This is a light and fruity wine with flavors of berry and a distinctive aroma of rose petals.
