Spanning both banks of the Loire, the vineyard of Coteaux d'Ancenis is located around the town of Ancenis (east of Nantes) and is mainly streched over about fifteen communes of the Loire-Atlantique and Maine-et-Loire.
AOVDQS (Appellation d'Origine Vin Délimité de Qualité Supérieure) since 1973, these wines are produced in different places as Ancenis, but also Ligné, Champtoceaux, Saint-Florent le Vieil and Varades.
The red are made from Gamay (majority), Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The white are made from Chenin blanc and Malvoisie (Pinot gris) which tends to develop for the production of medium-dry white wines.
The red and rosé wines are light and fruity with a light red ruby or cherry robe. The aromas are light and fruity.
The white wines made of Malvoisie can be served equally.
