Tasting Note: Pale yellow color. Fine, persist bead. Fine, lively, complex bouquet, combining the freshness of Chenin Blanc and the floral overtones of Chardonnay with Cabernet Franc fruit. Lively initial on the palate, with a rounded structure, and an elegant follow-through. Lovely, long aftertaste, with hints of fresh fruit (pears, peaches)
Food Matching: Enjoy as an aperitif or simply for pleasure (soft cheeses, fruit tarts sorbets, etc.)
Vineyard: From vines located in south Saumur from both 'tuffeau' chalk and shale soils. All grapes are harvested by hand.
Vinification: The grapes are pressed very gently and the juice is fermented at a cool temperature to make sure the fresh, delicate aromatics are preserved. A secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle according to the traditional method to make the wine sparkling. The wine then matures for 18 to 24 months on its lees in cool 'tuffeau' chalk cellars before being released.
