Loire Valley
Loire Valley
Viticulture in Loire Valley dates back to the 1st century AD, when the Romans planted the first vineyards. A millennium later, Sancerre wines had acquired a reputation for their high quality across Europe. Today, the Loire Valley wine region stretches from the Muscadet region near Nantes on the Atlantic coast to the region of Pouily-Fumé and Sancerre in north-central France. The Loire Valley boasts 87 appellations from AOC to VDQS and Vin de pays systems. White wines are mostly made from the Chenin blanc, Sauvignon blanc, Muscadet and Melon de Bourgogne grapes while red wines are made from the Gamay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. Red wines are noted for their balance and medium body with savoury fruity aromas. White wines are famed for being dry and sharp with a refreshing acidity. However, they can turn out sweet almost syrupy based on the vintage.
