Tasting notes: Louis de Grenelle Grande Cuvée– Saumur – Crémant de Loire

I bought this wine from Louis de Grenelle when I visited them in September 2010 during our great wine escape to France. It’s a classical “crémant” produced by “traditional method” (champagne method). 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Chardonnay are used for this wine which has very nice bubble intensity with a lemon color. Typical bread, yeast, white fruits and some lemon hints are very nice on the nose.

On the palate fruity notes are more significant than the nose with some hints of roasted peanuts. Certainly a good potential lies here…
