Presentation

Presentation
Since 1975, the Crémant de Loire appellation has continuously been recognized for the typicity of its clay-limestone terroir. The subtle blend of the three grape varieties that composes our cuvée, combined with careful ageing in our tuffeau cellars, gives it freshness and finesse. Our team works with passion the juices to make our De Chanceny cuvées elegant, rich and unique. Our Crémant de Loire Brut is the signature cuvée that embodies De Chanceny’s style, it reflects our passion for wine, for the art-de-vivre and celebration of the Loire Valley. Each year, a meticulous work is made out in our cellars to preserve this style over time.
Location
The production area of Crémant de Loire, located south of the Loire, covers 2,350 hectares. Our vineyards are located around the villages of Montreuil Bellay and Brossay, in the southern area of the Saumur region.
Terroir
The vines selected for De Chanceny wines are located on tuffeau terroirs. Tender and white, this stone was used for the construction of the Loire castles, but it is also ideal for wine growing: it retains and redistributes rainwater on the land.
Vinification
The grapes are harvested by hand. A soft pressing and a fermentation at a cool temperature (64°F) allow a good conservation of the aromas. The second fermentation is made according to the "Méthode Traditionnelle", in the bottle, after a selection of the best juices.
Ageing
The 18 months of ageing on laths in our tuffeau cellars before disgorgement bring an incomparable finesse of bubbles.
