Story

The wine
De Chanceny is emblematic of our know-how in producing fine, sparkling Loire wines according to the Méthode Traditionnelle, developed since 1953.
Situation
Overlooking the Loire River.
Terroir
Our Vouvray "RENDEZ-VOUS" cuvée is made from grapes grown in vineyards located on a limestone plateau, overlooking the Loire River. The Chenin Blanc grapes, harvested with great care, sublimated by the chalk terroir and aged in our tufa cellars for over two years express their quality in a lovely aromatic complexity and unusual elegance.
Vinification
Gentle pressing and cool fermentation (18°C) ensure that all the aromas are preserved. The best juice is selected from the first pressing. Second fermentation in bottle according to the Méthode Traditionnelle.
Maturing
10% of the cuvee is aged traditionally in oak that gives an lovely complexity. The bottles are stored horizontally on wooden laths in our tufa cellars for a minimum of 48 months before disgorging, to develop an incomparable fine bead.
Varietals
Chenin blanc : 100%

Advice

Serving
Enjoy chilled (8°C).
Tasting notes
Nice golden yellow color. This Vouvray has a fine and regular bead. Fresh nose opens up with notes of toast and quetsches, enhanced by lovely hints of mint. Smooth and structured on the palate. This sparkling is well balanced between freshness and body. Long and vinous finish with notes of crystallized fruits.
Food pairing
Enjoy as an aperitif or with a meal: white fishes (pick-perch), poultries (poularde with sauce), desserts (apricot pie).
