Our AOC appellations

Our Reds

Saumur: This appellation, with its characteristic tufa stone, has been producing red wines for centuries. The caves hollowed into the rocks also enable winemakers to store their barrels in perfect conditions and mature their wine.
Saumur red is made from mostly Cabernet France grapes and is fresh and fruity.
Saumur Champigny is a product of heavily limestone-based soils, delivering a powerful and spicy wine.

Anjou RougeAnjou Villages
Anjou Villages Brissac

Anjou, Anjou-Villages, Brissac: Anjou produces red wines which are based on Cabernet Franc grapes, giving light, fresh wines.
Anjou Village Brissac is a stronger, more robust wine which nonetheless offers rounded tannins.

The Touraine region covers a range of terroirs on a wide range of soils (lime, clay, gravel). A number of red grape varieties are grown here (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Côt, Pinot Noir, Gamay, Grolleau, Pineaud’Aunis), which make for fresh and light wines with red fruit aromas.

Chinon: This appellation uses Cabernet Franc grapes to produce full-bodied, fruity red wines when grown on limestone-heavy soils, but are fresher and lighter when grown near the Loire.

Bourgueil and Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil: Here too, Cabernet Franc is the dominant variety, producing aromatic and fairly concentrated wines with cherry, strawberry and raspberry aromas with rounded tannins.

Cheverny: Grown on clay-limestone or siliceous soils, Cherverny red wines are light, fine and elegant. These are the result of a perfect harmony between Pinot Noir, for finesse and subtlety, and Gamay for freshness and rounded flavour.
