Complices de Loire

Complices de Loire

This exciting project in the Loire was founded in 2010 by ex Domaine Charles Joguet winemaker François-Xavier Barc. Thanks in part to his reputation, he was able to bring together winemakers from eight Loire valley appellations, who shared his terroir-driven philosophy. These wines are then vinified under his direction and bottled under the Complices de Loire label.

The vineyards of Complices de Loire extend over 16 hectares of vines, with marginally more devoted to white wines (9 hectares). The vines grow on soils of clay, sand, gravel or limestone. The harvest is manual and from vines aged 35 years old, on average, and grapes are carefully selected to keep only the best.

We absolutely love this wine here at Genesis! With an appealing bright golden colour, a nose brimming with fresh green apples, citrus and grilled almonds, and a palate full of rich and complex flavours, this is a standout wine for the price. Great minerality and a superbly long finish. Wow!
