Tasting notes
Saumur Brut De Chanceny has an attractive straw yellow colour. The bubbles are fine and the bead is regular. The floral bouquet is typical of Chenin Blanc. This sparkling wine is fresh and lively on the palate, with a very elegant aftertaste. Despite a very low sugar level, this wine is light and well-balanced.
Food pairing
Saumur Brut is an excellent aperitif. Its crisp, lively character makes it the ideal wine with which to start off the evening. Our cuvee De Chanceny is a perfect choice to accompany all starters but also fishes and poultry cooked with cream.
