"A cracking Sauvignon from the Loire, citrus and apples and elderflowers- without the price of Sancerre."
Anne-Sophie Penet and her Burgundian husband Frédéric Meurgey have increased the domaine to over 45 hectares. They and their four daughters now live in Château de la Presle, whilst Jean-Marie Penet spends his time hunting. The wines are all vinified and aged in stainless steel, they’re made in a lovely fresh style made to be drunk young. The Crémant de Loire is made by the traditional method using 80% Chardonnay and 20% Arbois. The wine is aged on its lees for 2 years as a minimum before disgorgement.
