Vouvray Brut Excellence "De Chanceny" 2016

Story

The wine
De Chanceny is emblematic of our know-how in producing fine, sparkling Loire wines according to the Méthode Traditionnelle, developed since 1957.
Terroir
Our Vouvray "Excellence" cuvée is made from grapes grown in vineyards located on a limestone plateau, overlooking the Loire River. The Chenin Blanc grapes, harvested with great care, sublimated by the chalk terroir and aged in our tufa cellars for over two years express their quality in a lovely aromatic complexity and unusual elegance.
Vinification
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.
Ageing
The bottles are stored horizontally on wooden laths in our tufa cellars for a minimum of 24 months before disgorging, to develop an incomparably fine bead.
Varietals
Chenin blanc : 100%

Advice

Tasting notes
Light gold colour with fine and elegant bubbles. The nose opens with notes of dried fruit, hazelnut and then candied lemon. A light toasted and grilled touch coats the whole. The attack is ample and enveloped with a nice and gentle evolution. Beautiful aromatic persistence on brioche notes.

To be enjoyed chilled (8-10°C) from aperitif to dessert, accompanied by a sea bream and its lemon sauce or a caramelised apple tart.
