De Chanceny, the emblem of our know-how in the production of fine Loire bubbles using the Traditional Method since 1957.

Story

The wine
The subtle blend of the three grape varieties that make up this wine, combined with careful maturing in our tufa chalk galleries, gives it freshness and finesse.
Location
The vineyards are located around the communes of Montreuil Bellay and Brossay, in the southern Saumur region.
Terroir
The grapes for our "De Chanceny" cuvée are carefully harvested by hand and come from a selection of tufa chalk and schist terroirs.
Vinification
Hand-picked, gently pressed and fermented at a cool temperature (18°C) to preserve the aromas. Second fermentation in the bottle according to the Traditional Method after selection of the best juices.
Ageing
The 12 months of storage on laths in our tufa cellars before disgorgement bring an incomparable finesse of bubbles.
Varietals
Chenin ou chenin blanc : 65%
Chardonnay : 25%
Cabernet franc : 15%

Tasting notes
Pale yellow colour. Fine persistent bubbles. Freshness and finesse: fine, nervous and complex nose combining the freshness and floral notes of the Chenin blanc, the fruitiness of the Chardonnay and the fruitiness of the Cabernet franc. Lively attack with an enveloped structure evolving with finesse. Beautiful aromatic persistence in the mouth with notes of fresh fruit (pear, peach).
Food and wine pairings
