Working closely with these affiliated growers, Remy Pannier provides advice on the latest viticultural practices to ensure production of the finest quality grapes.Remy Pannier has built three state-of-the-art wineries in the premier Loire Valley wine districts of Anjou, Touraine and the Pays Nantais where all their Loire Valley wines are vinified. Remy Panniers attractive packaging reflects over a century of tradition and experience in Loire Valley winemaking.
VinificationIn a view of reducing the use of sulphur, we disperse selected yeasts on the harvest before pressing. As a result, the must's microbial population is under control, thereby eliminating the need to use sulphur. We use flotation to rack the wine within a couple of hours to speed up the pre-fermentation and fermentation stages. Neutral gas is added: nitrogen and carbon dioxide to prevent oxidation before and after fermentation. The wine matures for 6 months.
