Marc Plouzeau

Thanks to the will of two generations, the Château de la Bonnelière regained its nobility and its original vocation, vineyards and wine. In 1976, Pierre Plouzeau bought the family property, renovated the castle and replanted the vineyards. In 1989, a modern winery was born as well as a wine "Chinon Château de la Bonnelière." His son, Marc, took over the domain in 1999, continuing to develop, going fully organic and perfecting the cellar. The vineyard of 20 ha is divided into three types of soil (gravel, Clay limestone and flint clay) that give rise to very different wines. "Les Cornuelles" is a parcel of 55 year old vines on "tuf". "Les Clos de Roches" is possibly the greatest terroir of the "left bank" of Chinon.
