Story

The story
The Vouvray appellation admits exclusively the Chenin blanc grape variety for the elaboration of its wines. Our Vouvray De Chanceny cuvées are the result of a meticulous harvest by hand, a gentle vinification and a careful ageing in our tuffeau cellars. The work of our winegrowers allows us to choose the best grapes of the appellation in order to make unique blends for our cuvées.
Location
The Vouvray appellation covers 2,250 hectares spread over 8 villages on the right bank of the Loire, on the plateaux and hillsides overlooking the river. The plots of land for our cuvée are located around the villages of Rochecorbon and Vouvray.
Terroir
The grapes for the Vouvray Brut De Chanceny come from a selection of clay-limestone and tuffeau soils, a soft and white stone emblematic of the region and ideal for growing vines. The local temperate climate gives soft maturity, sweetness and acidity to our cuvée.
Vinification
The grapes are delicately hand-picked. A soft pressing and a fermentation at a cool temperature (64°F) allow a good conservation of the aromas. A second fermentation in the bottle according to the "Méthode Traditionnelle” gives it finesse and elegance.
Ageing
The 12 months of ageing on laths before disgorging brings an incomparable finesse of bubble.
