Domaine des Baumard, Cremant de Loire, Carte Turquoise, Loire, France NV


In a deeply traditional region, Florent Baumard, one of Loire’s finest producers has gone against the norm and done it his way.  From the early adoption of screwcaps to different vine trellising systems, he has pursued his own ideas, the result is refreshing, full flavoured and delicious wines.

The fruit is hand harvest to ensure that only the best quality is used. On arrival at the winery, it is placed in a pneumatic press but only the first press wine is used. The first fermentation is in temperature controlled tanks with Chenin, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay being fermented separately. After blending refermentation takes place in the bottle and the wine is then aged on its lees for over a year.   No oak ageing

Tasting Note:  Crisp and refreshing, vibrant and delicate, this sparkling wine is worth going out of your way to try. Light straw colour, minerally aromas with notes of apple and peach on the nose. Lemon, apple and pink grapefruit on the palate. The mousse is elegant and refined and there is plenty of crisp acidity. The finish is long and dry with attractive biscuity notes.

Food Pairing: Makes a great aperitif and excellent with goats cheese.
