Loire Valley

"The Loire Valley is the 3rd largest appellation region in France, comprising a total of 50 appellations, denominations et IGP. The area between Chalonnes-sur-Loire (Maine et Loire) and Sully-sur-Loire (Loiret) has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status – one of only ten European winegrowing regions distinguished in this way...

Loire Valley Wines are characterized by their freshness and diversity of color, material and tastes. Everybody knows about the delicious rosé. Good, refreshing wines, as fruity as you could wish for, with a delicate touch of sweetness. The reds, whether fruity or serious, are great food wines. Whites come in all styles from dry to very sweet, providing something for every occasion. Sparkling wines, another Loire speciality, are made using the « traditional method »...

Loire Valley wines are unusual in that they are, for the most part, produced from a single varietal: Melon de Bourgogne for Nantes area; Chenin, Cabernet and Gamay in Anjou, Saumur and Touraine; Sauvignon in Touraine and the Centre; and also Grolleau, Pinot Meunier, Pineau d’Aunis, Romorantin etc. This breadth of variety is completely unique, and gives a very diverse, highly expressive range of wines." - Vins Val de Loire
