Story

Situation
The Saumur vineyards cover over 800 hectares on the south bank of the Loire River.
Terroir
The grapes come from selected clay-limestone, tufa chalk, and shale terroirs to the south of the Saumur area. Careful ageing in our tufa chalk cellars enhances its freshness and finesse.
Vinification
Handpicking of grapes, light pressing and cool fermentation (18°C) to preserve all the aromas. Second fermentation of selected wines in the bottle (according to the Méthode Traditionnelle).
Maturing
The bottles are stocked on racks for at least 18 to 24 months (minimum) in our tufa cellars to develop an incomparably fine bead.
Varietals
Chenin blanc
Chardonnay
Cabernet franc

Advice

Serving
Enjoy chilled.
Tasting notes
Pale yellow colour. Elegant and regular bead. Complex nose, combining the freshness and the typical floral bouquet of Chenin blanc, the fruity aromas of Chardonnay and Cabernet franc. Lively initial impression on the palate, with a rounded structure, and an elegant follow-through. Lovely, long aftertaste, with hints of fresh fruit (pears, peaches).
Food pairing
This Crémant de Loire blanc Brut is an excellent aperitif. It will delight your guests throughout the meal. Its crisp, lively character makes it the ideal sparkling wine with which to start off the evening.
