As France's most diverse wine region, the Loire Valley is best known for its crisp, dry white wines with refreshing acidity. The huge variation in the soil and climate allow for the Loire Valley to produce different grapes, each with their own characteristics. The best known Loire wine is Sancerre, which is 100% Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of citrus, gooseberry and grass.
Also from the Loire Valley are its red wines, roses and sweet wines. The reds tend to be light and elegant, the Rosés full-flavored, and the sweet wines among the best in the world. One of the most notable grapes used in producing these wines is Chenin Blanc, with characteristics of honey and butter at its finest and its ability to produce one of the longest lasting dry white wines.
