Famous winemaker Aimé Boucher established his winery in the heart of the Loire Valley vineyard in 1923, near the magnificent CHAMBORD castle. The proximity of this legendary château inspires us every day to craft superior wines from our unique terroir and to offer the best expression of Loire Valley wines, keeping the highest respect of land and people.
Drip-irrigation ensures optimal ripening. The vines are planted on south facing slopes in soils consisting of weathered granite on clay and benefit from the cooling effect of the nearby Atlantic Ocean (False Bay) during the ripening season.
These perfectly ripe grapes were gently pressed to avoid any harsh phenols. After settling, the juice was then racked, fermented at cool temperatures and left on the fine lees to enhance depth of flavour
