The area covered by the appellation is upriver from Tours, in an area between the Loire and Cher rivers, at the meeting point between the two valleys on a south-east sloping headland. It is spread across 3 communes.
Rich and bright straw yellow robe for sparkling and slightly sparkling wines, tending more towards a golden robe with hints of amber for mature sweet wines. Always flattering when young (white flowers, lemon verbena, citrus fruits and brioche for sparkling wines), Montlouis wines develop notes of almond, quince, honey and wax and have a pronounced minerality. Depending on how sweet they are, the wines can be tender, ample or rich, but are always full of freshness. Dry white Montlouis wines are rich and distinguished.
