About Coeur de la Reine
This new Loire Valley project is a partnership with Rodolphe and Ludivine Marteau, who took over their family's estate in 2010 (they are the 4th generation). The 29-hectare property is located on the south bank of the river Cher, on siliceous-argilo (clay and flint) soils.

The Touraine AOC stretches from the outer limits of the Anjou region to the gateways of the Sologne, in an area of confluence formed by the Loire river and its tributaries. The soils in the Touraine are very varied, with "perruches" (clay mixed with flint), "aubuis" (argilo-calcareous on a chalky subsoil) and sands on clays in the East. The influence of the sea in the West gradually takes on a continental character as you proceed to the east. These climatic differences combined with the different soils determine the selection of grape varieties grown.
