"Bâtard" because of the illegitimate white variety of Bourgueil. Cultivated by the many producers until early 20th century but never recognized at the time of the appellation creation (decree in 1937).

"Princesse" for the "very Loire" distinction of Chenin Blanc, compared to the more racy line of Cabernet Franc. Also for its elaboration by direct pressing which is more delicate than the extraction by maceration on the Cabernet.
