Presentation

Presentation
Since 1975, the Crémant de Loire appellation has continuously been recognized for the typicity of its clay-limestone terroir. The subtle blend of the two grape varieties that composes our cuvée, combined with careful ageing in our tuffeau cellars, gives it freshness and finesse. The blending of Cabernet franc, a typical grape variety from the region of Saumur, and of Grolleau makes this cuvée charming and recognizable with its red fruit aromas. Our team works with passion the juices to make our De Chanceny cuvées elegant, rich and unique.
Location
The production area of Crémant de Loire, located south of the Loire, covers 2,350 hectares. Our vineyards are located around the village of Brossay, in the southern area of the Saumur region.
Terroir
The vines selected for De Chanceny wines are located on tuffeau terroirs. Tender and white, this stone was used for the construction of the Loire castles, but it is also ideal for wine growing: it retains and redistributes rainwater on the land.
Vinification
The grapes are harvested by hand. A soft pressing and a fermentation at a cool temperature (64°F) allow a good conservation of the aromas. The second fermentation is made according to the "Méthode Traditionnelle", in the bottle, after a selection of the best juices.
Ageing
The 18 months of ageing on laths in our tuffeau cellars before disgorgement bring an incomparable finesse of bubbles.
