Château de Chaintres deploys its 20 hectares of vines in the heart of the Anjou-Saumur wine region. The winery offers a wide range of wines among the following appellations : Saumur Champigny, Saumur, Crémant de Loire.
Saumur-Champigny is sometimes wrongly considered as a small appellation. People who still say this have certainly never opened a bottle produced at Château de Chaintres! The wines of the winery (sorry, the Château) perfectly reveal the aromatic intensity of the terroir. The wines of Château de Chaintres also make wonderful wines for aging. I know, that all of us are good at being patient. But if you resist the (natural) urge to open the bottle right away, you will enjoy pure gems in the future! Whatsmore, since 2007, the Château de Chaintres winery has been gradually decreasing the use of chemicals and obtained its organic certification in 2013. Enjoy.
