Overview

L’Alliance is sourced from La Petite Roche, a lieu-dit just west of the village of Savennières located on a gentle southern and southeastern oriented slope facing the Loire river. Here Damien has some younger vines of Chenin planted on sandy grey schist soils. While fruit from La Petite Roche makes up the majority of the blend, there is a small percentage of press wine from Genêts added.
