Story

The wine
Deligeroy is emblematic of our know-how in producing fine, sparkling Loire wines according to the Méthode Traditionnelle, developed since 1953.
Situation
Saumur
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
Hand picking, gentle pressing, and cool fermentation (18°C) ensure that all the aromas are preserved. Second fermentation in bottle of a selection of the best wines, according to the Méthode Traditionnelle.
Maturing
The bottles are stored horizontally on wooden laths in our tufa cellars for a minimum of 18 months before disgorging, to develop an incomparably fine bead.
Varietals
Chenin blanc : 65%
Chardonnay : 20%
Cabernet franc : 15%

Advice

Serving
Enjoy chilled (8-10°C).
Tasting notes
Pale yellow colour. Fine, persistent bead. Fine, lively, complex bouquet, combining the freshness of Chenin Blanc and the floral overtones of Chardonnay with Cabernet Franc fruit. 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
Enjoy as an aperitif or simply for pleasure (soft cheeses, fruit tarts sorbets, etc.).
