N/V Sauvion Cremant De Loire Brut

Cremant is becoming increasingly popular as an amazing alternative to Champagne. They are made using the Traditional Method (just like in the Champagne region) so can be fabulous value but often with that brighter, fresher, younger style which lots of people love!

Tasting Notes 

Nose

A perfectly balanced lively Crémant with blossom aromas.

Palate

Sauvion Cremant de Loire Brut is rich and full in the mouth with good length. The mousse is rich and effervescent with aromas of citrus and brioche followed by ripe peach and blossom flavours on the palate. The finish is bright and refreshing.

 

Cremant de Loire made by Sauvion is a blend of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay grapes from vineyards around Angers, Saumur and Tours. It is made by the Traditional Method with the wine being aged for a year in bottle prior to release. 

Producer

This is a beautifully balanced and lively Cremant de Loire made by Pierre-Jean Sauvion who is in the fourth generation of his winemaking family. An absolute gem of chap, extremely talented yet down-to-earth, winemaking has consumed much of his life and he was even born in vineyard after his mother unexpectedly went into labour. He attributes his noticeably young appearance to the fact that in his words “I have been drinking Muscadet since I was 3”.

The property is in the heart of the Nantais, at the western end of the Loire, close to the ocean and its helpful cooling breezes. Most of the Sauvions' 35ha of vines is in the central Sèvre-et-Maine area of Nantes, producing Muscadet using the Melon de Bourgogne (Muscadet) grape, but the estate also has vines in the more coastal area, plus some Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Much care is taken in the vineyard and the chateau is moving swiftly towards becoming fully sustainable.
