Monmousseau Crémant de Loire Blanc Brut

WHY WE LOVE IT

  • Hand-harvested, classical Cremant de Loire!
  • A bit of Cabernet Franc in the mix adds a beguiling herbaceous note.

Varietal Composition: Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Franc

Elaboration: Hand harvested fruit. This cuvée is elaborated according to the traditional method process. its secondary fermentation and maturation take place in our underground caves, at a natural constant temperature of 12°C for 24 months minimum.

Tasting Notes: The color is a very pure and pale yellow. Its bubbles are extremely subtle, fine and abundant. Its bouquet is fruity, lively and fresh. A perfect balance comes out of the slight acidity of the Chenin grape and the mouthful sensation of the Cabernet Franc which give this cuvée greatness and roundness.
