Charles Bove was founded in the 19th century in Montrichard, in the Loire Valley. Its base of operations was, and is, an enormous rock quarry, abandoned after it had been quarried for building the Loire Chateaux. This old quarry is now composed of 15 kilometers of underground cellars, with hardly varying temperatures of 12°C, summer and winter. The humidity inside is ideal for making and storing wines.
This wine is composed of a selection of juice from the vineyards of the Loire Valley and is based heavily on Chenin Blanc with a dollop of Chardonnay to add richness. The wine is made according to traditional methods; during the bottle fermentation and maturation, it is kept lying on lathes for more than 18 months.
