Story

The wine
C.Greffe is emblematic of our know-how in producing fine, sparkling wines according to the Méthode Traditionnelle, since 1953.
Terroir
The grapes come from selected clay-limestone terroirs on a plateau, overlooking the Loire River. Harvest at peak ripeness and gentle winemaking methods, associated with careful ageing in our tufa chalk cellar, give this wine freshness and finesse.
Vinification
Gentle pressing, and cool fermentation (18°C) ensure that all the aromas are preserved. Second fermentation in bottle of a selection of the best wines, according to the Méthode Traditionnelle.
Maturing
The bottles are stored horizontally on wooden laths in our tufa cellars for a minimum of 12 months before disgorging, to develop an incomparably fine bead.
Varietals
Chenin blanc : 100%
