The perfect example of how a Crémant de Loire, is often a better choice to many fizz alternatives out there at this price. This sparkling Chardonnay is well balanced, with a lovely, elegant bubble! Dangerously easy to drink, one bottle is never enough. Made in the same way as champagne*, this wine rests on its lees for one year, which adds to its lovely creamy texture.
*Méthode Traditionnelle a.k.a Traditional Method
Terroir: Chardonnay and Orbois vines have been planted on silty sandstone soil over calcareous soil.
Age of vines: 25 years old vines for Orbois & 50 years old vines of Chardonnay.
Vinification: Grapes are hand-picked. The temperature of the alcoholic fermentation is controlled at 11 degrees. The fermentation takes place in concrete vats. The second fermentation happens in the bottle. After a year on the lees, the wine is disgorged and a “liqueur d’expedition” is added to reach a balance between acidity and sugar.
