Chardonnay Chenin Blanc Ugni-Blanc Colombard Cabernet Groslot France
Since 1886, Grandin have been producing the finest and most successful Vin Mousseux in all of Vallée Loire. These are France's most amiable and approachable sparkling wines, renowned for their freshness and tittilating aromaticness. Crafted to full and true Methode Traditionelle, Grandin begins with a rigorous selection of fruit, before being treated to a regimen of ancient vinification techniques and a minimum twelve months under secondary ferments, building creamy texture and infusing flavour.
It was in 1886 that Henri Grandin first launched the elegant sparkling wine which still bears his name. The Grandin property is still centred around the grand old château at Ingrandes-sur-Loire, with its old La Bouvraie cellars which provide the optimal conditions for maturing wine. Awarded Gold at the prestigious London International, China Wine & Spirit and Vinalies Internationales, Grandin is described by professionals as sophisticated, pleasantly toasty and extravagantly rich. An assemblage of fruit from the Loire, Bordeaux and Charentais, is treated to a natural secondary ferment in bottle for a year, within the darkness of the 17th century Grandin cellars, which remain at a constant 54 degrees fahrenheit.
An attractive sparkling wine, profuse effervescence and rich straw gold color. Scents of floras and yeast, light citrus and hints of toast. A palate of juicy, flavours, delicate almond and hazelnut characters are supported by citrus fruits and buttered brioche notes. Crisp and elegant, a fully rounded palate, lingering with vitality and exquisite freshness on the finish.
