Its basic wine is En Chailloux, a blend of several vineyards with a softer style, followed by the Buisson Menard, more siliceous in style and more valuable with age. Their other two wines are expensive superstars barrel-fermented and sourced from individual vineyards.
- Pur Sang that refers to the horses with which Dagueneau works his fields. But its best wine, and perhaps the best white produced in the north of the Loire, is without a doubt El Silex, which is obtained from old vines that grow in a clay soil rich in silica.
