Domaine des Coltabards is in a famous part of the Ménétréol area of the Loire Valley. The famed soils are Kimmeridgian and silex. After the grapes have been crushed a cold static settling takes place while the fermentation starts at low temperatures in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wines are then aged on their fine lees until bottling to preserve the freshness.

This is a limpid, brilliant wine with a pale golden-yellow color. It displays powerful floral aromas (white flowers) and fruit (grapefruit, orange) on the nose. The palate is round and well-balanced with remarkable length and freshness on the finish.
