Signature Brut

Bouvet-Ladubay

Signature Brut play

Region: France / Loire Valley
Grapes: 90% Chenin Blanc, 10% Chardonnay (proportions in coupage may change slightly by vintage)

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. The grapes are pressed in the vineyards and the juice is delivered directly to the cellars. 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.

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