La Jalousie is fruity and seductive Savennières from its youth : a chenin blanc grown on a schist terroir.

I admit that someone’s jealousy was the origin of this cuvee, which was simply a natural and original wine which flowed from its sourceEHarvested as the moon rose, these grapes were young, juicy and golden, ready to give this wine its charm and energy.

Your nose will be delighted by a bouquet of lime blossom and citrus whilst on the palate it will have you dreaming of warm peaches on a sunlit wall, ferns on the edge of a little wood and above all jasmine. Jasmine has been a symbol of love and female temptation in the East for centuries: Cleopatra is said to have gone to meet Mark Anthony in a boat whose sails were coated with jasmine essence, nowadays she would probably invite him onto her yacht to try this SavennièresE

Evelyne’s suggested food and wine pairings

Serve la Jalousie between 10 and 13° as an aperitif with slices of eel or as an accompaniment to white fish and meat or crustaceans, with vegetables from the market. In May and June, asparagus are an absolute delight with this wine, in winter, try artichokes or cabbage, perhaps with a little Vivaldi for a truly moving experience.

A dynasty of women with a passion for nature and excellence


Marque de Las Cases and her husband Bernard du Closel had no children ; Chateau des Vaults was given to their niece : Michèle de Féligonde . With the help of her husband Jacques Bazin de Jessey for 30 years and her daughter Evelyne de Pontbriand, she brought international renown to the estate, for both the gardens and the vineyards. Michèle and Evelyne were elected successively to president of the AOC Savennières.

In the heart of the Savennières hills, part of a world heritage site and a bird refuge, this remarkable site is both a conservation area for rare plants from the banks of the Loire and one of the most prestigious vineyards in the Loire valley.

The development of wine tourism has made this estate a leading player in local tourism. More than 12,000 visitors stroll along the path through our grounds every year.

The Chateau des Vaults, with its concerts, literature evenings, modern sculpture exhibitions and many other events involving nature and our way of life, has also become a wonderfully rich cultural venue in its own right.

The days of stonework are over, we are now constructing an image of excellence in the domain of French wine.
