Champalou Vouvray Brut - $25.00
(No rating yet)
Lovely gold with copious, tiny bubbles. The Chenin shows subtle aromas of orange zest, lemon zest, dried pear and a little floral honeysuckle. A sip brings a punch of lively apple, pear and light orange with faint honey and fennel. The finish leaves you pondering the wines many dimensions. Better with a wider range of food than Champagne at a better price for certain!
• All grapes harvested by hand
• Slow fermentation with indigenous yeasts only
• Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally depending on the vintage
Vouvray Brut “Méthode Traditionelle”:
The grapes for the Vouvray Brut are picked at maturity, and early in the morning to best respect the quality of the fruit. The must is then fermented in stainless steel and the wine is raised on fine lees before bottling. A second natural fermentation takes place once the wine is in bottle that gives its effervescence. The bottles are aged sur lattes for two years before disgorgement. The Vouvray Brut "Méthode Traditionnelle" is a blending of three different vintages per cuvée.
