Overview of the Wine
Catherine and Didier Champalou both came from vigneron families, yet their mutual sense of independence prompted the couple to brave it on their own. Since starting the domaine in 1983, their label has become one of the most highly-acclaimed in the appellation. Vouvray is home to the noble Chenin Blanc, more commonly known as Pineau de la Loire in their part of the world. The Champalou family farms 21 hectares of vineyards, embracing sustainable farming while integrating the use of the lunar calendar. Their soils are rich, deep, and aerated though regular plowing. The Champalou house style produces wines of great elegance and tenderness, highly aromatic with impeccable balance. No one comes close to copying their distinct style.

With the Classic, it is a fresh and fruity wine that expresses itself. The combination of freshness and delicate fragrances allows it to be served on grilled white fish and meats, shellfish, vegetable tians and Japanese dishes. Ideal for an aperitif. Serve at 10 degrees Celsius.
