Sparkling Saumur Rose, Corail, Louis de Grenelle
Sister to the medal winning Louis de Grenelle Brut. Aged at least a year in deep cellars under the town of Saumur to attain the highest quality.
Deep pink in colour and flecked with fine bubbles the bouquet is a festival of small red fruit (raspberry, wild strawberry) and flowers (iris, violet). On the palate, the wine presents notes of sour candies and red fruit. A wine for celebration par excellence, this is perfect as an aperitif or to accompany desserts (fruit tart, chocolate gateau).

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.

Wines from the Loire Valley vary wildly in terms of their style and flavour – in part due to the vast number of appellations and large areas planted under vine. From tangy, minerally, terroir-driven Sauvignon whites, to juicy and distinctive Pinot Noir reds and roses, and a great deal of specialities in between. Brimming with innovative producers aiming to produce wines as naturally as possible, there is much joy to be found in Loire Valley wines – we recommend you dive in head first to sample the delights on offer today!
