history
Alliance Loire is a group of winegrowers who decided in 2002 to pool their resources in order to offer a complete range of authentic, well-balanced wines from Muscadet to Vouvray along the Loire River. The winegrowers are driven by the strong but simple values of the modern cooperative - solidarity, respect and creativity - values enhanced by a real team spirit, which enriches each stage of the wine production process.  Alliance Loire groups together 8 cooperative cellars, representing all the diversity of the terroirs and appellations of the Loire Valley. Loire wines in general are known as reasonably priced refreshing wines.
Vineyard
The production area of Crémant 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 clayey limestone. Various soils including tufa limestone (the limestone which was also used to build the famous Loire Valley castles).Vines : 20-30 years - 150 acres-Yield : 4T/acre.
Winemaking
Manual harvesting, gentle pressing and low-temperature fermentation (64°F) to preserve the aromas. Second fermentation in the bottle by the Traditional Method after selection of the best juices. Stored for at least 18 months on racks in our freestone cellars before disgorging to make incomparably fine bubbles.
Tasting notes
A pale yellow wine with tiny bubbles. Rounded and delicate: a fine nervy complex nose with the freshness of Chenin blanc, floral Chardonnay and fruity Cabernet franc. Lively attack on an enrobed structure evolving with grace. A nice aromatic persistence in the mouth on notes of fresh fruit (pear, peach).
Food pairing
Should be enjoyed chilled (46-50°F) before a meal or just for a treat.
Aging potential
2 years.
Grape varieties

Super refreshing, the big bubbles in this sparkling wine propel fresh fruit flavors of ripe lime, green apple, and pear with a refreshing lemon-lime finish. Clean enough to use as a mixer, but nice enough to have on its own on a sunny day.
