The wine
De Chanceny is emblematic of our know-how in producing fine, sparkling Loire wines according to the Méthode Traditionnelle, developed since 1957.
The grapes for our "De Chanceny" cuvée come from selected clay-limestone, tufa chalk, and shale terroirs to the south of the Saumur area. Careful ageing in our tufa chalk cellars enhances its freshness and finesse.
Hand picking, gentle pressing, and cool fermentation (18°C) ensure that all the aromas are preserved. Second fermentation in bottle of a selection of the best wines, according to the Méthode Traditionnelle.
The bottles are stored horizontally on wooden laths in our tufa cellars for a minimum of 18 months before disgorging, to develop an incomparably fine bead.
Chenin blanc : 65%
Chardonnay : 20%
Cabernet franc : 15%


Enjoy chilled (8-10°C).
Tasting notes
Pale yellow color. Fine, persistent bead. Fine, lively, complex bouquet, combining the freshness of Chenin Blanc and the floral overtones of Chardonnay with Cabernet Franc fruit. Lively initial impression on the palate, with a rounded structure, and an elegant follow-through. Lovely, long aftertaste, with hints of fresh fruit (pears, peaches).
Food and wine pairings
Enjoy as an aperitif or simply for pleasure (soft cheeses, fruit tarts sorbets, etc.).
