Story

The wine
The Chenin blanc grape variety, harvested gently, sublimated by the chalk terroir, and left to mature in our tufa galleries for more than two years, expresses itself through a very nice aromatic complexity and a rare elegance.
Location
The vineyards overlook the Loire, around the communes of Vouvray and Rochecorbon near the city of Tours.
Terroir
Our Vouvray "Excellence" cuvée is made from grapes from parcels located on a limestone plateau.
Vinification
Gentle pressing and fermentation at a cool temperature (18°C) allowing good preservation of the aromas.
Second fermentation in the bottle according to the Traditional Method after selection of the best juices.
Ageing
The minimum 24 months of storage on laths before disgorging brings an incomparable finesse of bubble.
Varietals
Chenin blanc : 100%
