Domaine Chauveau, in the Central Loire Region for Generations
The Domaine Chauveau is present in the Central Loire region and has a history of several generations of winemakers. The owner took over the vineyards from parents in 1997, and a newly renovated winery with all modern equipment and winemaking techniques has enlarged the wine estate since 2012. The winery produces around 135,000 bottles every year for their cellar and major restaurants and hotels. At the same time, more than 55% of their production is exported to multiple countries including the USA, Japan, and in Europe. There are serious quality checks and development controls in place to make sure that their wines are high-quality. Domaine Chauveau appreciates guests to the estate and gives them a great time and excellent introduction to their wines.
Stunning Perfectly Ripe Grapes by the Winery
Their estate spreads around 17 hectares of land with about 15 in Pouilly Fume, Pouilly sur Loire and 2 in Coteaux du Giennois. The terroir here features different types of soils like the flint clays, Villiers limestone, and Kimmeridgian marls that gives diversity and uniqueness to their wines. The main grape varieties they use for their red, white and rose wines are Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Chasselas. Electric pruners are used to prune the vines from December to March manually. The grapes are harvested around the end of September with a harvesting machine. A pneumatic press is used to get quality juice out from the grapes. After this, fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures for around 2 to 3 weeks in stainless steel tanks. This allows the wines to achieve the required taste and aroma.
