Chateau de l'Eperonniere Cremant de Loire

Regular price $26.00

Winemaker: Mathieu Tijou

Appellation: Anjou, Loire Valley, France

Grape Varieties: Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc

This aromatic and expressive Crémant shows what superb sparkling wine can be made from Chenin Blanc with ample aging sur lattes (in this case, 3 years). From the 2011 vintage, it’s a blend of 80% Chenin, 5% Chardonnay, and 5% Cabernet Franc disgorged in 2014. With fine mousse and notes of yellow apple and wisteria across the midpalate, it’s nicely balanced with 2 grams of dosage tempering the naturally high acidity of Chenin Blanc.
