Crémant de Loire Blanc Prestige

Sparkling wines - 2015

Fine sparkling wine to enjoy weddings or big days with !

Vineyard

The parcels of vines are located in Bellevigne-en-Layon (Faye d''Anjou and Thouarcé). The soils are made of clay and schist. Crémant de Loire Prestige is mainly made out of two grapes: Chardonnay (80%) and Chenin Blanc (20%).



Harvest

The grapes are handpicked as carefully as possible in crates. These crates are able to contain at least 22 kilos of fruits. Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay are picked up early in the harvest season, during the first two weeks of September but it can be by the end of August if the grapes are ready.



Winemaking

The tractor brings the crates to the winepress where the grapes are gently brought down. The press cycle is very smooth not to alterate the grapes.
Once this step is over, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats.
After that, the fermentation process continues in bottles for 15 months. Within this resting period, the yeasts still act on the wine and bring carbonic gaz to create Crémant de Loire. Before extracting the sediments from the bottle, we need to riddle the bottles twice a day on wooden racks in order that the sediments come down in the bottle''s neck.
Then, we can remove the sediments from the sparkling wine and add an expedition liqueur in the bottle. This one can be lighter or stronger depending on the sparkling we want to produce: dry or semi-dry.
By the end of the removal and after some rest, Crémant de Loire is ready to drink !

Duration: 2 years


Tasting

Sparkling white wine with fine air bubbles. Brilliant pale yellow colour. White flowers and citrus aromas on the nose as well as baked bread. In the mouth, we feel the Chardonnay roundness but also the brioche bread flavours. Crémant de Loire Prestige is a fine, lively and fresh sparkling wine.

Tasting temperature: 12°C to 16°C
Sommelier's advice:

Best served fresh between 7°C and 8°C. Perfect for cocktails and appetizers. For deserts, try some fruits tarts, chocolate cakes or ice creams.
