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. This cuvee is the expression of our enthusiasm (passion), our dynamism (terroir, vineyard), our brightness (bubbles, effervescence).
Terroir
Clay-limestone soil, along with a subtle blend of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay have given his wine its unique character.
Vinification
Selection of the plots according to the maturity. Gentle pressing and cool fermentation (18°C) ensure that all the aromas are preserved. The best juice is selected from the first pressing. Second fermentation in bottle according to the Méthode Traditionnelle.
Ageing
The bottles are stored horizontally on wooden laths in our tufa cellars for a minimum of 48 months before disgorging, to develop an incomparable fine bead.
Varietals
Chardonnay : 40%
Chenin blanc : 40%
Cabernet franc : 10%
Grolleau : 10%

Advice

Serving
Enjoy chilled (8°C).
Tasting notes
De Chanceny “Impetus” has an attractive golden yellow colour. The bubbles are fine and persistent. The nose opens up with notes of crystallized lemon, yellow peach, mint and pastry cream, enhanced by hints of toast and moka. The effervescence is particularly creamy. Ample and smooth on the palate. Long aftertaste with aromas of dried fruits.
Food and wine pairings
This Crémant is an excellent aperitif. Perfect accompaniment : white fishes (pick-perch), poultries (poularde with sauce), desserts (rhubarb tart, poached pears).

"« Expressive nose of honeyed fruit, toast and candied lemon. Richly poised character with citrus and creamy notes. Savoury truffle and nuts finish the palate nicely with a long and sumptuous length. » DWWA 2020 " [+]
