The grapes are hand harvested. Only the first and best juice of the pressing from the best local vineyards is selected. As tradition imposes fermentation is slow and in a bottle. Gratien & Meyer makes a conscious decision not to use malolactic fermentation in the production of its champagne. Lees aging is 18 months. Gratien & Meyer ages its ‘Cremant de Loire’ for over three years, well above the legal one year ageing.
Color: Straw yellow. Aroma: Intense nose, fine and elegant, with shades of citrus fruit, honey and acacia .Palate: Fruity, fresh and crisp on the palate.
This Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc blend is classic Loire. It is lightly honeyed with perfumed apricot and pear flavors. Bright acidity and a crisp, clean aftertaste create a fragrant, fresh wine to drink now.
Pear and quince fruit notes are lined with a hint of bitter almond flavor, giving this a lightly coarse edge on the finish.
Adult Signature is required for every shipment.
