Reviews

"Plenty of texture and depth"

Jeb Dunnuck - "The NV Crémant 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. Juicy citrus, tangerine, and lime-like characteristics all emerge from this medium-bodied, balanced Crémant that has plenty of texture and depth. It’s a good value and a serious sparkler."

"Round, mouthfilling sparkling wine"

Wine Enthusiast - “A blend of Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay, this is a round, mouthfilling sparkling wine with ripe apple flavors layered with grapefruit acidity and a tight, final texture that is crisp and mineral.” - Wine Enthusiast
