Of all the crémants and sparkling wines in the Loire Valley, the small appellation of Vouvray probably make the very best.
This medium-dry sparkling is full of fun, great at any time, any occasion, and oh-so easy to drink. As you sip it, it is dry at the beginning and then you can savour the flavours of quince and apricots on the back of the tongue. In a sparkling wine this is so totally new and wonderful.
If you like something smoother for cocktails try it as an aperitif accompanied by cashew nuts and spicy olives.
Delicious also at the end of a meal as it matches all sorts of easy desserts such as apple pie, apricot pie, vanilla mousse, etc.
All our wines are totally unoaked.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Full of lively bubbles and orchard fruit – yellow apples, pears and quince – with a well-balanced light touch of sweetnesss – a star sparkler for meringues and meringue-based desserts like Eton mess or a red-berry pavlova.

“A fantastic green fruit and citrus nose with a touch of aromatic hand-cut flowers. The palate is zippy
and refreshing but gorgeously sweet at 28 grams of sugar per litre. Outrageous after dinner fizz.
It’ll keep you going and do serious battle with strongly flavoured soft cheeses like Camembert.”
