Vigneau Cremant de Loire Sparkling Brut
Chateau Gaudrelle ( Vigneau )
France - Loire Valley

It is an interesting experience as a sparkling wine for people who want to have a fine and elegant wine comparable to Champagne for a very good price.
A wine with aromas of white fruits with very fine bubbles, a round and slightly sweet attack followed by a fresh finish. Thanks to its fruity aromas, it can be enjoyed as an aperitif but will accompany all your desserts with white fruits.

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Apple, peach, and some spicy, brioche notes all emerge from the NV Crémant de Loire Sparkling Brut, which is medium-bodied, fresh, and lively on the palate. A blend of equal parts Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay, aged 18-24 months, it’s a high-quality Crémant to drink over the coming 3-4 years."

wa92"The two sparkling wines should not be missed. They’re both terrific examples of how good sparkling Vouvray can be. Both are 100% Chenin Blanc cuvees. Even better is the slightly richer, more honey and lemon-scented and flavored non-vintage Cremant de Loire. A blend of equal parts Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay aged for a minimum of 18 to 24 months in their cellars before disgorgement, this is a real beauty and a superb wine. Unfortunately, just under 100 cases are imported to the United States."

Wine Enthusiast 88 Pts"The Chenin Blanc in the blend gives this wine its nutty fruity character. It is an attractive ripe wine, spicy with a soft texture that is held up by its final acidity. Drink now."
