Loire Valley wines

The Loire Valley wines are distinguished from the wines from south of France by their freshness, fruit and great digestibility. The vineyards of the Loire Valley have no hierarchy of soils, as in Burgundy, nor historical classification as in Bordeaux. It is less easy to identify the best producers. Yet this region is a gold mine for the wine lover due to its three strengths: diversity, quality and price.

The Loire Valley can produce anything from liqueur to dry wine, from the fruity flavor, close to the grape, to the mineral flavor from the terroir. Today, wine production is generally qualitative, with the impact of a new generation of artist winemakers returning to a more careful and less productive viticulture, while respecting the grapes in winemaking.

The Loire Valley is full of good deals, such as these beautiful wines less than 6 euros in Touraine, or these great cabernets of Champigny and Chinon for less than 15 euros.
