On the Montagne Blanche, a rocky promontory of light-coloured tufa, the keep of the Vendôme castle was once erected. The "capital" of the Pagus Vindocinensis, Vendôme is bathed by the Loir, which is divided into several branches and on whose banks the Côteaux du Vendômois vineyards are located.


The story
A truly amazing white produced by the Cave de Vendôme, which reflects the authenticity of its terroir.
The vineyard is located at the northernmost point of the Loire Valley.
The "Coteaux du Vendômois" Appellation Contrôlée area extends over limestone hillsides topped with flint clay and enjoys a good exposure.
Gentle pressing then light settling before a slow fermentation at 18°C.
Maturing on fine lees elegantly brings out its aromatic qualities, its structure and above all its very pretty minerality, then bottled in the spring.
