One of the last remaining family-owned sparkling wine houses in Saumur, Louis de Grenelle, owns about 2 kilometers of limestone caves beneath the town. All of their sparkling wine is stored in these cool caverns, many of which were used during World War II by the French resistance. This is not sparkling wine made by "leftover" juice. This bubbly was made from sustainably grown, hand-harvested Chenin Blanc, fermented and aged in tank using the Méthode Champenoise with low dosage. On the nose, the wine offers aromas of apricot, peach, yellow apple, brioche and hazelnut. On the palate, ripe fruit flavors persist alongside acacia and lime blossoms. Delicious.
