Loire Valley, France

The Loire is actually the largest river in France and the Loire Valley is a large region that follows as it flows towards the Atlantic. Another cooler climate region in France, the Loire Valley produces many exciting and exceptional red, rosé, and white wines in a variety of styles. 

Lean and lively white varieties like Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscadet (Melon de Bourgogne or Melon Blanc) dominate in many sub-regions here including Anjou-Saumur, Touraine, and the Upper Loire (Centre). Rustic reds like Cabernet Franc, Gamay, and Côt (Malbec) are also grown in smaller areas. Some of the most infamous for Cabernet Franc are that of Bourgueil and Chinon located in the Touraine (Middle Loire). The Loire Valley is also known to produce quality sparkling wines from grape varieties including Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Franc (for rosé). You’ll often find these wines to be tart with fresh fruit flavors and labelled as Crémant de Loire. 

In 2002 the famous Jacky Blot, acquired the Domaine de la Butte in Bourgueil, where Cabernet Franc is the soupe du jour. His approach to production is described as “Burgundian” according to UK importer Charles Sydney Wines, “separating the plots by geological strata as they go up the hill, effectively creating his own cru system as he picks, ferments and matures each cuvée according to its position on the slope and the age of the vines.” Certified Organic.
