Bouvet-Ladubay

Cremant de Loire

Region: France / Loire Valley
Grapes: 80% Chenin Blanc, 20% Chardonnay

Bouvet-Ladubay sources its fruit from more than 100 plots in the Loire Valley, obtaining the best quality at every harvest through its long-standing relationships with winegrowers. The limestone subsoil is ideal for the cultivation of Chenin Blanc, and the mild climate coupled with the excellent drainage of the clay creates the natural acidity needed to produce a balanced sparkling white wine. All grapes are hand harvested and spend a minimum of 12 months on the lees. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel, then the finest wines from each lot are blended and the cuvée is bottled for the second fermentation, following the traditional method.

tasting note

Pale gold with amber tints. Delightful flower, pear & apple aromas. Expressive and beautifully fruity on the palate. Fresh, elegant & balanced.

food pairing

Enjoy throughout a meal. Recommended with poultry dishes and freshwater fish dishes.

“Arguably, the banks of the Loire--the Loire Valley itself--is a heavenly terroir to make our wines. We are very lucky.”
