Cave de Saumur 'La Grande Marque' Brut NV

Winemaker's Notes:

The Loire Valley is the second biggest area for sparkling wine production in France after Champagne and Saumur AC makes sparkling wines in the Champagne method (méthode traditionnelle) whereby a secondary fermentation in bottle gives the wine a complex, yeasty character. The vineyards of Saumur are planted on porous Tufa limestone soils, ideally suited to Chenin Blanc and also the black grape variety Cabernet Franc, which adds extra depth and richness to the wine. This elegant Saumur sparkler has an extended period of bottle maturation before release, resulting in a well-balanced, sophisticated sparkling wine which is a real crowd-pleaser and a great accompaniment to any occasion. Fresh aromas of green apple, citrus and toasted brioche. A lively mousse with lovely freshness and flavours of lemon, apple and subtle yeasty hints on the off-dry palate. A great wine for a celebration, ideal as an aperitif or served with apple desserts such as Tarte Tatin.
