Cremant de Loire, Cuvee Platine
A beautiful canary yellow, slightly straw-coloured appearance.
Flecked with fine, lingering bubbles. The bouquet is straightforward, dominated by lemon, pear and linden tree aromas. On the palate, the wine’s structure is highlighted by the rounded flavour of quince, the aromatic liveliness of acacia and the softness of strawberry.
Louis de Grenelle
In the Loire Valley, in the very heart of the Saumur vineyards, the Caves Louis de Grenelle produce their sparkling wines, made from local grapes, according to an ancestral process of wine-making. It is in old quarries, dug out of the tuffeau stone (limestone) that the Saumur wine matures and takes on its special character. The wines are slowly developed and aged in the deep cellars carefully following the traditional method of second in-bottle fermentation.
Rewarded with many medals, whose number increases every year, this family business that combines tradition and modernity, has gained a excellent reputation worldwide.
