The Loire, France's longest river, is home to many much celebrated and quintessential French grapes. From the once ubiquitous-in-the-UK Melon de Bourgogne by the Atlantic coast, to the home of Sauvignon Blanc in Sancerre, via some of the world's best Chenin and crunchy Cabernet Francs, Gamays and Pinots there is quality all around. Being at the northernly limit for winemaking, the wines are hallmarked by their crisp, fresh, crunchy fruit and high acidity, where reds may sometimes struggle to ripen and whites nearly overdeliver on acidity. The 69 appellations that make up the larger region are grouped into smaller sub-regions with predominantly single variety wines leading the way. As you move east the climate changes markedly from maritime to continental as the soils change from flint and limestone to the hard granite of central France.

Founded in the 1960 and acquired in 2019 by the current owner, Domaine de Haute-Perche is situated at the heart of the Aubance Valley, just 10 km from Angers, within the terroirs of Anjou Noir, with 35 hectares under vine on superb Schiste soils. As a responsible player in the Loire Valley, Domaine de Haute Perche has completely changed its vine growing and winegrowing practices, in view of becoming exemplary and unique in terms of corporate social responsibility (CSR). The estate’s team equally carries out highly precise and non-intrusive measures, with tiny doses of sulfur, only when necessary. Special attention is also paid to the quality of the working environment: major investments have been carried out in the cellar to upgrade the property’s winemaking equipment, as well as staff working conditions. Haute Perche is aiming for carbon neutrality by 2025, equally thanks to the following measures: solar roofs, reuse of bottles, and rain water collection.
