Details of production:
The grapes used to make Crémant de Loire Brut come from 6 quality terroirs: Côtes de Saumur, Coteaux de St Léger, Puy Notre Dame, Bas Layon, Haut Layon and Montreuil Bellay all of which have predominantly chalky soils. The grapes are entirely hand-picked in small 25kg crates and a pneumatic press is used immediately after gathering (160kg of grapes gives 100l of juice) . During vinification grape varieties and terroir are separated in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks and it is the taste of the clear, unblended wines which determines the final mix (the best vintages using around 10% of reserve wines). The second fermentation is drawn in the bottle and the wine is matured on the lees for a minimum of 24 months in the wineries freestone cellars.
Light yellow colour with fine, delicate bubbles. A complex nose mixing different fruits such as quince, peach and grapefruit lead to a fresh finish with a delicate and refined mouth-feel.
