Why We Love It...

We love chenin blanc – the weight and textural richness of chardonnay, with the bright, clean notes of sauvignon blanc… and a little twist of something that is uniquely its own. Many of the world’s greatest whites are based on this grape, and sparkling wines have just started their journey of exploring this spectacular variety!

Vouvray is the global heart of chenin blanc production. Set in the cooling maritime climate of the Loire Valley, chenin grows better here than virtually any other region in the world. Fog in the morning, a salty ocean-driven breeze that carries down the bends of the Loire river, and the chalky limestone soils all combine for an environment perfectly suited to this grape. For this beauty, the Caves de Producteurs de Vouvray – a local co-op of 30 growers from across the Vouvray appellation – allocate some 50% of their harvest specifically for this wine’s production. The co-op has thrived for seventy years, with sparkling production growing to never before seen heights over the past decade. 

For this tête de cuvée the co-op combines the best parcels of 100% chenin blanc sourced from over 400 acres of vineyards throughout every corner of Vouvray. Taste and smell delightfully crisp Red Delicious apples, struck flint, key lime, grandma’s pie crust, and zippy pomelo, all uplifted with a mineral edge reminiscent of river rocks in a gently babbling brook. The end result is supremely drinkable, delightfully bubbly and vinous, and all-in-all, a fantastic sip to be had and absorbed in near record time! We got as much as they would sell us – good bubbly at this price is something you want to keep around for everyday drinking, am I right? This is a lay-it-all-on-the-line steal of a deal… and one not to be missed!
