The areas covered by the Bonnezeaux AOC are located in a small proportion of a single commune on the right bank of the Layon: Thouarcé. The wines are made from Chenin blanc. They have a deep robe, yellow or with glints of green, turning to antique gold with amber hues; an intense, complex nose, aromas of flowers, white fruits, candied citrus fruits and exotic fruits in the early years, which after 5 to 10 years evolve into hints of precious woods, dried or candied fruit, honey and roasted almonds, generally marked by strong minerality. Powerful opulence on the palate with a strong fat richness, giving these very sweet wines exemplary balance between mellowness and liveliness.
