About Côme Isambert - Cristal Closed

Côme Isambert - Cristal Closed Loire, France My philosophy is to produce wines and ciders reflecting the diversity and richness of the terroirs of the Loire Valley / Normandy and to promote through various cuvees the complementarity of cultivars: grapes as Chenin blanc, Cabernet franc, Grolleau noir, Grolleau gris, Gamay as well as apples, pears.I work only with gravity and give the wines time to finish their natural processes without adding any additives.
