The Chauveau family have run the estate for several generations. Since 2000, Benoit Chauveau and his wife Emmanuelle have been in charge. Total production is only about 7,500 cases. As Benoit says: "Our approach is to continually strive to improve the quality of our wines through the development of sustainable methods, reduced yields and caring for the land and vine."
The 12 hectare estate is located at Saint Andelain on the right bank of the Loire. Kimmeridgian Marl and Villier Limestone constitute the local geology; it yields Pouilly-Fume wines with complex aromas which continue to develop.
Grapes are hand harvested and gently crushed in a pneumatic press. Cool fermented in stainless steel, this wine sees no oak but spends 6-8 months on its lees to add a rounded texture and weight.
Stylish, elegant lacy citric fruit and mineral notes. Another star find, a classic combination of fantastic terroir, family values and passionate winemaking.
You could enjoy this on its own, but pair up with any seafood, especially scallops for a treat. Also excellent with chicken and, for a surprise, with a classic Loire goats cheese and good bread.
