BackgroundRemy Pannier has been identified with premium quality Loire Valley wines since 1885, when it was founded by Francois Remy. In 1956, Remy Pannier decided to partner with Maison Ackerman, the pioneer of Loire sparkling wine production. Ackerman then passed the company down to his son, Louis Ackerman, who kept the tradition of fine winemaking in the family for generations. Over the years, Remy Pannier has developed strong working relationships with over 800 growers throughout the Loire Valley. 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.
VinificationAll of the grapes used to make this in-house wine are harvested within the Muscadet zone. Part of the blend is derived from a skin maceration undertaken at a controlled temperature (16/18°C). And maturing on fine lees (monthly stirring) provides fat and volume. This wine is aged in underground vats, ensuring a stable temperature all year round. The wine is matured for 6 months.
