Cremant de Loire - Domaine des 2 Moulins
This excellent blend of Chardonnay 70% and Chenin Blanc 30% makes for a wonderful aperitif and will really bring your palate alive before a meal or even delight just about everyone when used for a toast in celebration. It was made in the same way as Champagne - the Traditional Method - yet it costs far less and is a far superior quality than most wines at the lower end of the Champagne spectrum.
The nose is fresh and lively with floral notes, aromas of green apple , lemon and pears. On the palate it is similar, fresh and lively with a fine pearl and a youthful vivacity. A great bottle of fizz!
Region: Loire Valley
Grape Variety: Chardonnay70% Chenin Blanc 30%
Bottle Size: 75cl
Closure: Natural cork
Style: Quality sparkling wine with elegance and freshness
Drink With: Great friends, before a meal with nibbles or many shellfish dishes.
This is best drunk around 5 degrees C. Start it off in the fridge door then finish it off in a bath of ice and water. It's so good before a meal to get the juices going but equally good with seafood, fish especially smoked and grilled white fish.
