Cru Gorges, an exceptional wine.
Located on soils of altered gabbro and quartz clay, this unique terroir articulated on both sides of the Sèvre Nantaise gives the wines of the Cru Gorges an inimitable character with great aging potential.
This great Loire white wine is the result of the collaboration of passionate winegrowers who wanted to produce a grand cru and thus bring out a terroir of excellence within the Muscadet appellation.
After more than two years of aging on lees, the Cru Gorges from the Melon de Bourgogne grape variety offers great aromatic finesse where notes of white fruits and intense minerality mingle.
Ideal as an aperitif, the Cru Gorges also accompanies noble fish, foie gras, white meats and cheese platters.
The association of Cru Gorges winegrowers was born in 1997 with a common objective: to create an exceptional great wine. They select the best viticultural soils and set out the production and vinification conditions in the specifications in order to obtain the Cru Gorges appellation.
The Cru Gorges is subject to a specific approval procedure and complex specifications, with a maximum yield established at 45hl/ha.
After the harvest, this wine remains in vats for at least 24 months by regular stirring to bring up the lees.
Each year, a jury of experts tastes these wines from the Gorges to validate this Cru.
