Story

The wine
Producing a quality wine for ageing without added sulphites is far from being an easy task. Doing without them requires a great deal of technical mastery on the part of the winemaker. It is a real headache, but with patience and passion, it is also a consecration! The wine is then the true reflection of the natural aromas of the grape.
The Caves Alliance Loire offers you this "Grain d'expression" cuvée, the result of a fine selection of grapes, combined with the use of a bio-protection technique in the vineyard. A fruity, intense and greedy cuvée!
Terroir
This very original terroir of the primary era is made up to the north of Ancenis of Paleozoic shales and sandstones which form a unit called the Ancenis syncline.
Vinification
Bio-protection of the grapes at harvest time to prevent oxidation. Vinification in thermo-regulated vats. Short maceration of 7 days.
Ageing
Bottled in the spring in an oxygen-free environment to preserve the aromatic potential of the grapes.
Varietals
Gamay : 100%
