Regional Information

Origin : Val de Loire, east of Tours. Soil : Chalky-clay and clay-siliceous. One of the specific features of Lacheteau lies in the important share of business devoted to marketing estate-bottled wines (5 to 6 million bottles per year). This policy is based on long-term work on two key points: - Monitoring the estates and the quality of the wines, - The conditions for bottling on the property, which must be safe and in line with the wines' organoleptic qualities.
