The Château de Parnay is a flagship estate of the AOC Saumur Champigny. The property is located along the Loire River, classified as UNESCO World Heritage. In 2006, this esteemed property was acquired by Regis Vincenot and Mathias Levron who transformed the land into a jewel of the Loire Valley, as well and becoming Certified Organic since 2013.
Mathias’ Philosophy is as such: « Good grapes for good wine. We have focused on organic wine process and sustainable farming. To achieve our goals we must watch our vines closely and we must make careful and precise selection of our plants».

Slow fermentation at 15 degrees Celsius. Ageing on fine lees in vat and oak barrels.
The nose is distinguished by subtle and refined Chenin characters: linden, lemon grass, apricot, peach and quince, then the aroma of citrus - a great freshness coming from the clay limestone terroir of Saumur. The Mouth feel is round and confirms with the nose’s notes, such a persistance from this Loire variety. At the end, we discover the nice notes of jammed citrus fruits (such as grapefruit), underlining the nature freshness of this dry white wine.
Pairs perfectly with shellfish such as crab and obster, as wel as goats cheese. Drink now or age for 4-5 years.
