Cremant de Loire Vintage, Cuvee 'L' de Grenelle, 2010
This wine has a light golden yellow appearance, flecked with generous, fine and lingering bubbles. The foam is creamy with a persistent ring. The fresh, clean bouquet is marked by delicate warm brioche aromas which give way to a generous fruit basket including pear and vine peach. The unctuosity of the foam heralds a fine, extremely delicate touch on the palate. The crystalline, extremely light freshness of the attack contrasts with an ample, vinous and generous finish of gingerbread, brioche and hazelnut. On the mid palate, the taste buds are delicately coated in a wonderfully silky veil. A sharing wine par excellence, this delicate fizz is the perfect accompaniment to evenings with friends. It could be served with a crayfish mousseline or a prawn and lime salad, as well as with delicate vanilla and gingerbread desserts.

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.
