    SPARKLING WINES from the LOIRE
Made by the Traditional Champagne Method (Méthode Traditionnelle).
In the heart of the Loire Valley; the House Louis de Grenelle makes excellent sparkling wines.
Created in 1859, it remains the last family owned house.
    These Saumur sparkling wines are an ideal substitute for NV Champagne at much lower prices, and their quality leaves nothing to be desired - please try a bottle!

This
Means little stones: Caillotes is the first of François’ vineyards to be harvested, and this cuvee has not seen chaptalisation since 2004.
This is very dry in 2012.
Stony and minerally, then lemony with balanced bracing acidity.

    DOMAINE HUET
This is generally considered one of the TOP domaine's in Vouvray.
These wines are some of the greatest white wines money can buy with an ability to age for decades and decades. When mature, the sweetest wines easily rival Yquem or top German TBAs, but are a fraction of the price.  2015 looks like rivalling some of the great vintages of years gone by and we cannot recommend them highly enough.
   

“Do yourself a favour, forget all the hullabaloo about Bordeaux and Burgundy; go seek Gaston Huet’s wines… to silence a dinner part with awe and wonderment.” Neal Martin

Wine Spectator -
Features a wide range of apple, green melon, ginger and green plum notes gliding throughout, with the off-dry edge imparting a flattering feel. Latent minerality lengthens the finish.

'Clos du Bourg' Demi Sec

Wine Spectator -
Quite ripe, with tropical mango and papaya notes mixed with peach, apple and quince flavours. Pretty ginger and heather notes fill in the background, while the finish shows a well-embedded mineral edge, imparting tension to match the opulence.
