Coteaux d'Ancenis is a wine appellation in the Loire region of France east of the city of Nantes which produces limpid white wines from the muscular Chenin Blanc grape (a contradiction we know but these wines really are fragile but Chenin Blanc has the ability to produce wines that last forever!) and Malvoisie.
The appellation also is permitted to produce red wines from Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines line the Loire on the opposite bank to the town of Ancenis.
