The Loire Valley has often been called the “garden of France.” This pastoral landscape, with its gently rolling hills and majestic chateaux, is the largest sparkling wine region in France, outside of Champagne.
|Wine maker notes
|Due to the Loire Valley’s northern location, the grapes maintain a high level of acidity during harvest. The grapes undergo cool stainless steel fermentation for 8 to 15 days. Consistency and quality are carefully monitored to create fine bubbles. The dosage has been perfected to make a clean, fruity and demi-sec style sparkling wine of extraordinary quality.
|Served chilled. This slightly-sweet sparkling wine is lovely as an aperitif, or enjoyed with
cheeses, appetizers, salads, pate, or with a light fruit-based desserts.
|One of the best known names in fine Loire Valley sparkling wines is Marquis de la Tour from Maison Ackerman. Maison Ackerman, which has been identified with premium quality Loire Valley sparkling wines since 1811, is the Loire Valley’s single largest wine producer.
