Story

Story

Four generations of the Pieaux family have dedicated their lives to Chenin Blanc, crafting refined wines from the region’s chalky and mineral-rich “tuffeau” soils (the same stones used to build the Loire Valley’s legendary chateaux).  Estate vineyards also contain a good amount of flint & limestone (found also in Sancerre) that contributes more complex aromas and enhances the wines’ already lively mineral body.

Respectful of terroir and biodiversity, the Pieaux family practices environmentally responsible viticulture

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

This fresh almond and marzipan-scented sparkling Vouvray has wonderfully ripe nut and floral flavors. Medium-bodied and silky-textured, it has a delightful mouth-feel. Its copious bubbles are well-integrated in the wine, providing freshness yet not being intrusive.

This excellent value should be drunk over the next year or two.
