Known for its ability to produce great sweet wines, the Chenin blanc grape variety, known locally as Pineau de la Loire, benefits from a microclimate that is conducive to over-ripening and the development of Botrytis Cinerea.
It is when the Botrytis Cinerea, known as "noble rot", has concentrated the sugars and aromas that the Chenin blanc is harvested.
