ACCOLADES
The production area of Crémant de Loire in the south of the Loire region extends over 2700 hectares. The grapes in this vintage are a blend from selected terroirs, mainly of clayey limestone. Various soils including tufa limestone (the limestone which was also used to build the famous Loire Valley castles).Vines : 20-30 years - 150 acres-Yield : 4T/acre.
Manual harvesting, gentle pressing and low-temperature fermentation (64°F) to preserve the aromas. Second fermentation in the bottle by the Traditional Method after selection of the best juices.
Stored for at least 12 months on racks in our freestone cellars before disgorging to make incomparably fine bubbles.
A pale yellow wine with tiny bubbles. Rounded and delicate: a fine nervy complex nose with the freshness of Chenin blanc, floral Chardonnay and fruity Cabernet franc. Lively attack on an enrobed structure evolving with grace. A nice aromatic persistence in the mouth on notes of fresh fruit (pear, peach).
Should be enjoyed chilled (46-50°F) before a meal or just for a treat.
2 years.
