Sail up the Loire River, on a "gabare" - a local type of boat - meandering through the vineyards and discovering our wines: "Vallée Loire" is a group of wines that act as ambassadors for the Loire Valley AOP, marked by their character, freshness, and approachability.

Story

Situation
The Saumur vineyards cover over 800 hectares on the south bank of the Loire River.
Terroir
The key feature of this area is its clay limestone soil: this soft, white stone, known as tufa, used to build the Loire Valley Castles, promotes good root development in the vines and ensures a moderate water supply.
Vinification
Destemming and light skin contact, followed by pneumatic pressing. Fermented in temperature-controlled vats and bottled in the tufa cellars, where the wine continues ageing, protected from light and temperature variations.
Maturing
Aged for a minimum of 4 months on the lees.
Varietals
Chenin blanc : 100%

Advice

Serving
Serve chilled (8-10°C).
Tasting notes
Lovely pale-golden colour with silver highlights. Luscious, complex, intense bouquet, bursting with citrus (lemon, grapefruit) and tropical fruit (pineapple) aromas. Clean, soft and fresh on the palate. Long, citrus aftertaste.
Food pairing
Serve as an accompaniment to fish and seafood, meat dishes, cheeses (goat's cheeses) and fruit tarts (lemon, apricot, etc.).
