About 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.
