Château de Minière

She is a little woman, but she leads a double life at top speed: one week on the outskirts of Brussels, the next in Ingrandes-de-Touraine, in the Loire valley, and then back to the fold. Kathleen Van den Berghe, who trained as a construction engineer, dropped her career in business in 2010 to take up wine making. With her husband Sigurd Mareels, she breathed new life into the Château de Minière, which lies in the PDO Bourgueil. Their 18 hectares of vines are all Cabernet Franc. The vineyard has been certified as organic since 2013.

Blanc de Minière

This first white wine produced by the Château de Minière is made using Chenin vines from the Château de Suronde, which lies in Anjou and which the couple recently acquired. This transfer deprives it of the PDO, which is why it has the "Vin de France" designation. Production is limited to 3,000 bottles.

Harvested by hand, with grapes sorted on the stocks. Soft pressing, low temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Matured for 4 to 6 months in stainless steel tanks. 

   Straw-coloured robe of medium intensity.

   Aromas of white flowers and honey.

   Very fresh; average length.

   Aperitif, salads, fish, seafood.

   10-12°C.
