Wines of the Loir Valley

The vineyards of the Loir Valley are discreet, of human dimensions. Jasnières, Coteaux du Loir and Coteaux du Vendômois, produced since the Middle Ages on the banks of the Loir, celebrated by Rabelais, Ronsard and Henry IV, are made by winegrowers who have used all their experience in the service of nature.
In these micro-climatic locations, from Vendôme to Chateau-du-Loir, the vines get nourishment through their roots, from the soil. The whites, Coteaux du Loir and Jasnière, made from the Chenin grape variety, have fruity, flowery aromas. They can be matured for decades. The Coteaux du Loir and Coteaux du Vendômois reds and roses are made from Pineau d’Aunis. This mythical grape variety, grown for over a millennium, gives light ruby reds, fresh and light, with a slight peppery note, and original rosés such as the not-to-be-missed Coteaux du Vendômois gris, with its “roach eye” color.
