Crémant de Loire Brut NV

Loire Valley, France

Crémant de Loire Brut NV is a blend of 60% Chenin Blanc (including 10% reserve wine) 20% Chardonnay and 20% Cabernet Franc. This polished and fresh Crémant is hand crafted with the same process and attention to detail as the best Champagne, with only the “cuvée” juice used and extended 36-month aging on the lees.

Jeb Dunnuck "The NV Crement de Loire Brut is a beauty based mostly on Chenin Blanc, with 20% each of Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc. It spent 36 months on lees in bottle.…

The beautiful color is achieved from a 12-15 hour skin contact.

Château de Fontaine-Audon Sancerre 2016

Loire Valley, France

The crown jewel of Langlois’ Sancerre holdings is at Château de Fontaine-Audon, a 37-acre vineyard from which they produce a single-vineyard Sancerre of the same name. 100% Sauvignon Blanc grown entirely on silex (flint) terroir, Langlois-Chateau’s single-vineyard Sancerre undergoes a gentle pressing, is fermented in stainless steel and then is kept on its lees for 6 months until bottling in April. 

Wine Spectator “Lean and fresh, with thyme, chalk and lime pith notes that are bracing through the finish. Offers a kick of gooseberry at the very end.”
