Crémant de Loire by Louis Despas from Bouvet is a full-bodied and fresh sparkling wine from the Chenin Blanc (80%) and Chardonnay (20%) grapes.
This sparkling wine appears pale golden to amber with a very fine, persistently rising perlage in the glass. The fruity aromatic bouquet offers delicate hints of fragrant brioche and honey notes. Full-bodied and fresh on the palate, this delicate Crémant de Loire presents itself with good texture and excellent balance. Fineness and durable length characterize the reverberation.
Vinification of Louis Despas Crémant de Loire
Only the best grape varieties grown in the Maine-Loire areas approved for the Crémant are selected. The base wines are produced separately. After gentle pressing and the first alcoholic fermentation of the base wines in stainless steel tanks, they are very gently pre-clarified by cold sedimentation and then ground into a cuvée before they are filled onto the bottle for the second fermentation according to the traditional method. This Crémant then matures for many months in the underground chalk limestone cellars of the Abbey of Saint Hilaire - Saint Florent.
