Get to know: Domaine Landreau, Cremant de Loire Brut
Traditional method sparkling wine made from Chenin blanc and Cabernet Franc. Lots of floral and citrus aromas giving way to almonds and hazlenuts with a creamy texture and elegant bubbles.
This is great with creamy fish dishes or try with ham and cheese croquetas.
"Crémant is the name given to traditional method sparkling wines made outside of the Champagne region in France. This means you often get much better value for money as shown by this elegant example from the Loire. It's just great, really fresh at first then moreish."
Domaine du Landreau has passed through four generations of vine growers in the Loire. Here the vines are cared for meticulously and are picked by hand with several passes through the vineyard so that only those grapes that are at optimum ripeness are picked. Slow fermentation allows the wines to develop more character before they are rested for 3 years 'sur lattes' to ensure they are served at the optimum time.
