Chateau de la Roche en Loire benefits from an ideal micro climate, bordered on one side by the Chinon Forest and overlooking the valleys of the Loire and Indre. The mildness of the climate, typical of the region, is perfect for the vines which are planted on gentle slopes on soil composed on clay, sand and flint, giving the Chateau’s wines their special character.
The white wine is made from the Chenin or Pineau de la Loire grape, dry but delicate, with a remarkable bouquet with hints of quince, acacias, honey and apples. With its golden yellow dress, this Pet Nat 100% chenin 2018 surprises. The well-present bubble is fine and the aromas are those of ripe yellow fruits. In the mouth they also reveal all the flavors of the land, coated by a creamy and generous mouth. It is a meal wine, which will go perfectly with white meats with cream, mushrooms and soft cheeses. When it comes to desserts, it will be the perfect companion for desserts with yellow fruits.
