The Montlouis-sur-Loire appellation has to meet strict criteria (for its still wines):
- Yield limited to 52 hectoliters per hectare
- Vineyard planted density of 6000 vine stocks per hectare
- Short pruning technique with four spurs limited to two buds
The vineyard of Montlouis is limited to the towns of Montlouis-sur-Loire, Saint-Martin-le-Beau and Lussault-sur-Loire. Its total surface is 450 hectares.
The production is composed each year of an equal part of still wines and fine sparkling wines (ancestral and traditional methods).
Montlouis-sur-Loire is a city located in the Indre-et-Loire department (37), 15 km upstream of Tours on the Loire River and built on the high ground facing the South East.
Its soil is made of clay, covered with a layer of sand, flint and tuffeau, which is the limestone that has been used to build the Loire Valley castles.
The weather conditions are mild, with an oceanic influence, which will ensure a nice grape ripening and will allow us to create high-quality wines.
The Montlouis-sur-Loire wines are made with the Chenin Blanc, a grape variety also known locally as Pineau de la Loire.
