Champalou Vouvray Brut 750ml

Champalou Vouvray Brut

Yellow-gold. Peach and pear on the nose, along with a hint of honey; not very expressive today. Juicy pit fruit nectar flavors are given a bitter edge by a touch of lemon zest, which adds grip. Finishes with an echo of citrus skin.

We work our Brut according to the Methode Traditionnelle, but with a personal touch. We choose to harvest the grapes at a good maturity, early in the morning to help retain the quality of the fruit as much as possible. The must is fermented in stainless-steel tanks in our cellar. The wine then ages on its lees prior to bottling. Once bottled, the natural sugar from the grapes will re-ferment , it is this second fermentation that creates the bubbles. The wine then spends a long time, about 20 months, sur latte before being disgorged (when the crown caps are removed and the ”mushroom” cork is fitted).

The Brut is the quintessential party wine, ideal for the aperitif and the end of the meal, although preferably both! Its balance makes it perfect for a more sophisticated dinner as well.
