Region

The chalky slopes and gravel soils that flank the Loire River as it passes through the towns of Anjou and Saumur provide a home to the Chenin Blanc variety, producing dry, medium and dessert wines with good acidity and the Loire Valley`s best sparkling wines. The natural cellars carved into the chalk are ideal for slow maturation of the sparkling Crémant wines made by the traditional bottled fermented method and as mushroom farms!

Producer

The Alliance Loire represents the combined interests of many complementary local caves and co-operatives from Nantes to Vouvray. These members own significant vineyard in the main appellations of the west and central Loire. Across this region the land varies from alluvial gravel to limestone, schist and a mix of clay and chalk. Anjou rose is produced by the Caves des Vignerons de Saumur, one of the trend-setting forces in the Loire. The cave`s team ensure that member growers use little interferance in the vineyard and cool vinification that offers attractive fresh rose of quality and consistency.

A bright salmon pink rosé made from the Groslot grape variety, grown on the gravel soils of the central Loire. It is a medium dry rosé, the sweetness finely balanced with notes of summer fruits, strawberry, watermelon and hints of ripe peach. Well balanced and fresh with a crisp, clean acidity.
