    The opinion of the sommelier

    « This month I would like you to discover the Domaine de la Charmoise. Its wines are outstanding in terms of price quality ratio. The Ma- rionnets, the owners of this winery, are passionate about their work and this is shown in what they produce! Car- bonic maceration of grapes created nice aromas that will surprise you. »

    Grape variety

    Gamay is a red grape variety with white juice and very productive. In wintertime, winemakers cut the branches holding grapes very short. Each hectare has a big density of vine trunks and roots. These two characteristics of gamay facilitate the production of red, fruity, fresh and savoury wines.

     Anecdote

    Winemaker

    The Marionnet family arrived at Soings, in the east part of Touraine, 30 km to the south of Blois, during the 50s’. What’s the peculiarity of this winery? The Marionnets own the oldest grapevine of France, dated around 1850, before the phylloxéra crisis.

     Terroir

    Terroir

    Thanks to its location in the east end of the Touraine, this winery benefits from a continental climate, favourable to sauvignon and gamay. Spring frosts are quite rare and temperatures help these two grape varieties to come to maturity before the harvest. Grapevines grow on “perruches” (flinty clay and gravels) soil. It is a dense and compact soil that produces wine for laying down.

     Terroir

    Terroir

    The sauvignon has a strong presence in the Vallée de la Loire, and is highly demanded for its structure, its freshness and its wide range of aromas. Very sensible to diseases (especially powdery mildew), it harmed its culture for a long time. However, the progress of vine-growing permitted to develop its plantation since the 60’s.
