What particularities for Amboise wines?
Amboise Blanc is a wine made from the Pineau de la Loire grape variety. There are two kinds: sparkling wines, rather light on the palate and pleasantly accompanying aperitifs and desserts, then dry, semi-dry or sweet still wines depending on the amount of sunshine.
Amboise Rouge comes from a blend of different grape varieties: Cabernet and Gamay. And it is then that the wine expresses all its fragrance.
Amboise Rosé is obtained by maceration of the whole grape and comes from the same grape varieties as the red. It is bottled early to preserve all its freshness.
