The specific nature and the variety of Loire wines come from the cool climate and the type of soils. The four main grape varieties (Sauvignon blanc, Chenin, Cabernet franc, and Gamay) are to be found over the entire region.
The vines stretch over varied landscapes: gravel terraces in Chinon and Bourgueil, hillsides and plateaux in Touraine…
The reds boast deep colours and fruity aromas, the whites offer subtle, intense scents, not forgetting the sparkling wines with their fine bubbles.

This light bodied red wine comes from vines rooted in a sandy soil with gravels and alluviums. It is very characteristic of the Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil "appellation", with a lot of freshness and crispy fruit notes. Bronze Medal - France Independent Winegrower Challenge 2014
Bright purple color with a beautiful clarity, the aromatic nose is revealing a dominance of ripe red fruits. The palate is smooth, structured by a pleasant tannic presence which gives a nice length, marked by spicy overtones. A subtle and round wine, it is the perfect expression of its gravel-soil origin. Best served at 16 °C. Gold Medal - Loire Valley...
100% Gamay. Light body, supple, here is a festive wine with aromas of red fruits that you can drink cool during summer on a terrace or at a barbecue. Also goes well with cheeses. It is best to drink it young, but it could keep 5 years, it is a matter of taste. Let’s simply say that Gamay is timeless and essential.

100% Chardonnay. Aromas of brioche, banana, roasted almond and hazelnut. In the mouth the Chardonnay is smooth, balanced, with citrus and buttery notes. 1/3 of the wine is aged in new oak barrels. A great wine with complexity and volume to pair with scallops, fish in sauce, poultry and cheese. Good for ageing 10 years or to enjoy right away.
