A really superb sparkling Loire, dry but not aggressive, produced from Chenin Blanc in the small village of Martigne-Briand, close to the town of Saumur. The wine has a beautifully fragrant English late summer fruits bouquet (apples and pears) and is clean, fresh and lively on the palate, a great alternative to Champagne
Has a vibrant strawberry colour and very fine, persistent bubbles. It has a red fruit nose with currants and summer fruits very evident. The wine really comes alive on the palate, being dry but with a wonderful crunchy (apple) fruit character and red fruits on the finish. Well made, well-rounded, delicious - too easy to drink too much of it!
Cherry red with salmon pink highlights and a finely textured, consistent mousse. The nose is fresh, fragrant and inviting, offering light red fruit aromas and hints of biscuity yeast. On the palate the wine is medium bodied and dry, but possessed of a rip
Intense fragrance of exotic fruits with notes of pineapple, banana and yeasts provides a mellow, sweet fragrance. Full taste, lively, harmonious wine with a long fruity finish expressing the aromas present on the nose.
Lightly frothing with a lovely perfume of freshly crushed grapes and sherbet. On the palate it is lightly sparkling and off-dry, with a perfect balance of soft, sweet, grapey fruit with a hint of Turkish delight and lively, fresh acidity.
Beautiful harmony between lengthy Chardonnay and fragrant Pinot Noir. The result is a sparkling wine with a fine mousse giving freshness and finesse elegant ripe fruit and light yeast aromas and a rich creamy complexity on the palate.
Delicate pale pink in colour with a very fine and continuous perlage. The bouquet pronounced persistent and very fine offers a wide range of fruit aromas bringing to mind peaches and red currants. Dry and refreshing on the palate well structured and superbly soft it offers a harmonious balance of sensations and a fruity finish. Excellent as aperitif to accompany any meal with courses of fish and unique with cured pork meats.
Vibrant and racy fruit, bready yeast flavours and zesty appley freshness is accompanied by the waxed-lemon flavours of Chenin Blanc - a variety so clearly suited for sparkling production due to its fine acidity. The addition of a fifth Chardonnay gives the fruitiness and depth.
This is a very balanced wine with a soft yet lengthy finish making it a perfect summer aperitif or a great alternative to rose champagne. On the nose aromas of blueberries and raspberries with a hint of violets.
