In 1957, around forty winegrowers grouped together to confront the economic difficulties of the era, pooling far more than mere financial concerns. At the time, Robert, Marcel, Yvon, Geneviève and the others, hailing from the same terroir, hewn from the same rock and sharing the same time-honoured values, set up their cooperative at the top of the hill in Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg. “They chose to share their experience, their expertise and their dreams„
The production area of Cremant de Loire in the South of the Loire region extends over 2700 hectares. The grapes in this vintage are a blend from selected terroirs, mainly of clayley limestone.
Age of the vines:20-30 years
Manual harvesting, gentle pressing and low-temperature fermentation (18°C) to preserve the aromas. Second fermentation in the bottle by the Traditionnal Method after selection of the best juices./nStored at least 12 months on racks in our freestone cellars before disgorging to make unique fine bubbles.
A pale yellow wine with tiny bubbles. Round and delicate, a fine and nervy complex nose with the freshness of Chenin Blanc, the Floral notes of Chardonnay and fruity aspects of Cabernet Franc. Lively attack on an enrobed structure evolving with grace. A nice aromatic persistence in the mouth with notes of fresh fruit (pear, peach..).
To enjoy chilled as an aperitive.
An excellent wine for any celebration.
Chenin, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc.

Freshly crushed oyster shells, lemongrass and lime peel are zesty aromas from this pale sparkling wine. The bubbles are tight and crisp, washing over the palate with plenty of citrus, hay, and light toastiness. An easy sparkling wine.
