Parcels of Chenin Blanc are normally harvested around October, off fully mature vines, twenty or more years of age, planted north to south on the clay limestone hillsides of Vouvray and Vernou sur Brenne. Bunches are selectively hand picked and sorted into crates, keeping only the healthiest grapes for vinification. Fruit is treated to a pneumatic press, the finest runs are retained and cold settled for a day or two. Juices are vinified for a month at a controlled 16°C, to preserve fruit character while enhancing complexity. A component of reserve wines are included in the assemblage, bottled for two and a half years under cellar at 12°C, followed by degorgement and liqueur dosage.
Straw gold hue, a supple effervesence. Stonefruits and honeyed citrus notes, light jasmine and apple notes. Creamy palate offering good weight of fruit, a clean, revitalizing sparkling showing developed fig characters behind fresh cut citrus, pear and apple flavours. An exquisite aperitif style and splendid food wine, to match with seafoods, avocado recipes or canapes.
