Bouvet Ladubay is one of France’s greatest producers of méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine from the Loire Valley. The numerous castles that dot the Loire Valley are built using “tuffeau”, a local chalky limestone that creates soil idea for Chenin Blanc grapes. The Bouvet cellars are housed in ancient tuffeau quarries, creating the perfect environment for aging wine. Bouvet sources its fruit from more than 100 plots in the Loire Valley, obtaining the best quality each harvest through its long-standing relationships with winegrowers. The first fermentation of the wine takes place in stainless steel then the cuvée is bottled, allowing the second fermentation to take place in the bottle. The wine is then aged on the lees for 9 to 24 months.
