Loire wines

A majestic, tumultuous river that flows through the Val de Loire before reaching the ocean, a series of terroirs quite distinct from one another, each with its own indigenous grape varieties and each with its own wine with a unique character that cannot be reproduced elsewhere.

The Aocs of the Lora are: Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, Vouvray, Savennières, Quarts de Chaume, Montlouis, Chinon, Bourgueil, Menetou-Salon e Muscadet

The most cultivated vines are Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Melon de Bourgogne, Chardonnay for the whites and Cabernet Franc, Gamay, Grolleau, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Meunier for the reds.


Three areas characterise it: the Atlantic coast to the west with Aoc Muscadet. Here, the most widely cultivated grape variety is Melon de Bourgogne, which produces a fresh, disengaged wine that has little to do with the depth of its neighbours in the central zone.

The Aoc Anjou Saumur e Touraine, characterise the central area where the most cultivated vines are Chenin Blanc, which here more than anywhere else in the world, gives the wines elegance, minerality, freshness and such depth that they can be left in the cellar for decades and found in perfect condition.

Also important are the red wines made from Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon and Malbec.

In the third zone, to the east, with the Aoc Sancerre and Poully Fumé, Sauvignon is predominant, which here, together with other factors that make this terroir (composed of chalk and flint) unique, takes on vegetal, flint-like notes that are... absolutely inebriating.
