TOURAINE AMBOISE Aurélie Mançois DOMAINE DE LA GABILLIERE

DOMAINE DE LA GABILLIERE

aoc : TOURAINE AMBOISE

This domain is part of the viticulture school of Amboise,  a public training school in the Middle Loire that produces vintners not just for the region but for all of France. Amboise is a small but historic town, once the home of the French royal court and where Leonardo da Vinci spent his final years.  This 40 acres domain produces the Touraine Amboise and Crémant de Loire appellations.The domain is labeled Terra Vitis to show respect for the environment and a commitment to sustainable viticulture.

Part of a growing movement throughout France, Terra Vitis members strive to produce ahealthy, quality wine that has been crafted using natural methods that respect Man and the land.

The elaborations of Touraine Amboise are the result of a partnership between the students and the teaching staff. The domain is always looking for ways to improve its management of the soils. The wines produced on the domain have an excellent reputation. We are proud to introduce them to you in the USA.

AOC/AOP

Two concepts central to higher end French wines are the notion of "terroir", which links the style of the wines to the specific locations where the grapes are grown and the wine is made, and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) France and (AOP) Appellation d’Origine Protégée Europe system. Appellation rules closely define which grape varieties and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or even specific vineyards.

We do not select wines based on them being organic, biodynamic, or sustainable, but many of the wines produced by our winemakres fall in to one or more of these categories. The US regulations for organic wines are different from the French regulations for organic wines. Therefore, the French organic wines can’t carry on the bottle the French organic logo. We will mentionned in our descriptif if the wine is labeled organic in France.
