Famous for these amazing interpretations of Chenin Blanc in an array of styles. The grapes are grown on the distinctive, tuffeau limestone soils, creating intensely fruity still wines with saring acidity. The sweetness levels is listed on the label - Sec is the driest at less than 4 grams/litre; Demi-Sec has 4 to 12 grams per litre: Moelleux at 12 to 45 grams per litre; and Doux or sometimes listed as Liquereux, has more than 45 grams per litre.
The only sparkling wines in the Loire required to be aged a minimum of 12 months prior to release, including at least 10 months on the lees (most producers cellar wines for longer). This requirement has helped make serious wines, that comparable to Champagne without the prestige… or the prices.
