Critic Review

Decanter Magazine: 87Pts

"Pale lemon yellow. Subtle green and yellow apples mingle with lemons and a yeasty undertone. On the palate there's sweet yoghurty stone fruit. A grippy mouthfeel lends interest. Straightforward but enjoyable."
Natalie Earl

About the Producer

Since 1959, the family House Louis de Grenelle has dedicated itself to a singular pursuit: producing sparkling wines that are delicate, refined and complex. They are fortunate to work in a renowned territory. Simply, humbly, as befits any Loire Valley winegrower, they perpetuate this tradition of authenticity and quality in everything they do.

Vineyard and Winery

The grapes were hand harvested and upon arrival at the winery the whole bunches were destemmed and put straight into the pneumatic press to separate the skins from the juice. The press was done in stages to use the pure cuvée selection. The wine was kept cool to allow the unwanted particles to be removed from the bottom of the tank. Selected yeast as opposed to natural yeast was used to inoculate Alcoholic fermentation was done at low temperatures with different grape varieties separated. Blend tasting was performed in December with bottling from January to June after a minimum period of 18 months resting on lees.
