Tasting notes

Built from 40-year-old Chenin Blanc in three plots.
It's a floral, orange blossom scent, lively, elegant and natural sparkling wine. It's very refreshing, fruity and delicate.
The mouth is sharp and the bubbles are fine and elegant. They gently snuggle up to each other.
The refreshing sensation that moisturizes the throat and lasts forever is delicious!

Winery Description

The vineyard covers 13 hectares wide including 9ha in Montlouis sur Loire AOC and 4ha in Touraine AOC, in the districts of Saint-Martin le Beau, on the north side of the valley of the Cher, a small village near Montlouis sur Loire.

All plots are very fragmented and heterogeneous, both in terms of the age of the vines as the soils and grape varieties

Most parcels were planted before 1940 and has already celebrated 120 years old! The benefit of old vines is that they regulate themselves: quality and quantity of wines is more regular, including "small vintages" (when a vintage is complicated).
