The Loire is known for its white wines more than for its other wines. This is normal, they represent almost half of the wines produced in the region. Rosés and reds respectively represent around 20% and sparkling wines a little over 10%.
The appellations of the Loire Valley and the center are numerous but among the best known there is obviously Sancerre, produced from sauvignon blanc, but also Savennières, Anjou, Muscadet, Pouilly-Fumé and Ménetou-Salon for n 'to name a few.
Some estates are recognized worldwide for their skilful work, such as Louis-Benjamin Dagueneau whose Silex cuvée must surely tell you something ... as well as perhaps the Pur Sang cuvée, and for the greatest amateurs its confidential cuvée En Chailloux.
Nicolas Joly with his fabulous work on the biodynamic Coulée de Serrant clos is also from this region, as well as the Huet domain which produces Vouvray.
