Description

ABOUT THE WINERY
In the heart of the Loire lies Domaine Chancelle, a vineyard located on the magnificent limestone soil of Turquant, a small village nestled between Saumur and Chinon. Thierry Chancelle is a native of Chinon and Lydie, his wife, a daughter and granddaughter of viticulturists in Saumur. The entire family estate is situated on clayey-limestone slopes which consist of 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Chenin. Respectful to tradition, but also innovative, they have the concern to highlight the nuances of their terroir by practicing the most natural viticulture to preserve the soil balance of their plots. Chancelle produces powerful and elegant Cabernet Franc, but the couple has a true passion for Chenin. Early in their careers, Thierry and Lydie confessed their love for the variety and actively campaigned for the recognition of a white Saumur-Champigny appellation.
