Château de la Durandière stands at the door of the charming fortified village of Montreuil Bellay few miles south of the city of Saumur. The green banks of the Thouet river, a tributary of the Loire, run the lengths of this peaceful hill standing alongside troglodytes house, thousand-year-old stones and century-old trees.
Most of the vines of the estate are located between the walls of the Château on a chalky ridge overlooking the river. This mesoclimate associated with a strict sustainable farming allow the Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc to reach a pick of ripeness.
Saumur, with its northern cool climate, rich chalky terroir and endless network of caves, has all the same advantages for sparkling winemaking as Champagne. It is not surprising then that it is the third largest appellation for sparkling production in France after Champagne and Crémant d’Alsace. Cabernet Franc, the main Loire valley red variety, is a particularity of the Loire sparkling making this bubbly unique.
