Four generations of the Pieaux family have dedicated their lives to Chenin Blanc, crafting refined wines from the region’s chalky and mineral-rich “tuffeau” soils (the same stones used to build the Loire Valley’s legendary chateaux). Estate vineyards also contain a good amount of flint and limestone (found also in Sancerre) that contributes more complex aromas and enhances the wines’ already lively mineral body. Respectful of terroir and biodiversity, the Pieaux family practises environmentally responsible viticulture.
