Story

The wine
De Chanceny is emblematic of our know-how in producing fine, sparkling Loire wines according to the Méthode Traditionnelle, developed since 1957.
Terroir
Our Vouvray "Excellence" cuvée is made from grapes grown in vineyards located on a limestone plateau, overlooking the Loire River. The Chenin Blanc grapes, harvested with great care, sublimated by the chalk terroir and aged in our tufa cellars for over two years express their quality in a lovely aromatic complexity and unusual elegance.
Vinification
Gentle pressing, and cool fermentation (18°C) ensure that all the aromas are preserved. Second fermentation in bottle of a selection of the best wines, according to the Méthode Traditionnelle.
Ageing
The bottles are stored horizontally on wooden laths in our tufa cellars for a minimum of 24 months before disgorging, to develop an incomparably fine bead.
Varietals
Chenin blanc : 100%
