Monmousseau is one of the leading producers of sparkling wines in Touraine. This family owned business started in 1886 has been producing remarkable quality and value “Methode Traditionelle” sparkling wines from the various central Loire Valley appellations for more than 100 years. Production and ageing is carried out in 15kms of transformed limestone quarries left abandoned after yielding the stone used to build many of the famous Chateaux of the area. The cellar maintains a constant temperature of 12°C and perfect humidity for the aging of sparkling wines. Monousseau’s continued drive for quality combines both modern and traditional techniques, including the “Methode Tradionelle”, which ensures wines are aged in a horizontal position for over two years following secondary fermentation.
70% Chenin blanc, 30% Chardonnay (sometime referred to as “pineau de la Loire”) Aged for 18 months on lees imparts a touch of bready, yeasty complexity. This method traditional sparkling shows excellent finesse of mousse and purity of fruit with citrus, pear notes with a long fine consistent bead of bubbles. This is stunning value for such quality and can’t go wrong for the price! Stock up ! RRP $25
