Sparkling Vouvray, light as a meringue, dry yet flavoured with honey and hay, with a lasting hint of sweet biscuit.
Begin a meal with this excellent sparkler accompanied by smoked salmon blinis, or use it to finish a meal accoompanied by raspberry tart. Unique Selling Point: Aged in the family's 13th century cellars, cut into the rockMade with Chenin Blanc from the historic Loire, in a deliciously honeyed Champagne style.
From densely-planted (6600/ha) 5 to 25 year old short-pruned bushvines on chalky clay with silica on gently south east facing slopes generally around the village of Vernou at around 70m above sea level. After hand-harvesting (bushvines require extra labour but the quality makes it worthwhile), the grapes are whole-bunch pressed in a basket press. Fermented with no added yeast with temperature control at 18 C. No fining (gravity only). No oak. Aged on the lees in bottle for a minimum of 12 months and then further matured in the family's 13th century cellars hewn into the rock.
