Regarded by many as the finest expression of sparkling wine from the Loire Valley.

For many years the house of Bouvet Laudubay was owned by Taittinger Champagne and as such employs precisely the same wine making process as the Grand Marque itself. The grapes for the Bouvet 'Blanc' Methode Traditionnelle are Chenin Blanc, which had been grown in the Loire Valley prior to the Roman conquest of France. Bouvet source their grapes from 120 properties around Saumur - spread over an area of 15 x 30 kilometres. The notion of using such a diversity of vineyard sites is to provide complexity to the base wines. Domaine Chandon in the Yarra Valley employ a similar process. These 120 micro climates each provide the blender with base material that when blended together will create the sensation of considerable complexity. The art of blending is critical and at Bouvet the third generation of blenders from the same family are in charge - in fact they have been creating the blend for the last 60 years. Tasting Noteā€¦.
This sparkling pours well opening with a white frothy mousse which dissipates to reveal a pale straw coloured base wine. Very fine bead showing good persistence. The nose exhibits baked apple and ripe pear aromas with a toasty overlay and a faint hint of cinnamon spice. The palate possesses refreshing baked apple and citrus flavours followed by some light toastiness and spice. Clean crisp dry finish. Aftertaste of baked apple, citrus, toast and spice.
