Cave Coopérative du Vendômois

The vineyards of the Vendômois are located along the banks of the river Loir, a tributary of the Loire proper. It also happens to be France’s most northerly wine producing region Founded in 1929, the Cave Coopérative du Vendômois has twenty growers who deliver grapes to be sold under the Coteaux du Vendômois appellation.

Tasting Notes

Straw yellow colour in appearance. Roasted citrus, alongside vine peach and acacia flower aromas on the nose. Round and fruity on the mouth with gooseberries and dried almond and pineapple flavours. Mineral and flinty character with a persistent finish.

Food Matches

A good wine to have as an appetizer, and also pairs well with white fish in a creamy sauce, goats cheese, grilled swordfish or tuna.
