Brut sparkling aromatic white
Blend: 100% Chenin Blanc
From: France, Vouvray AOC
By: Christophe & Caroline @ Domaine Pichot
This sparkling Vouvray comes from one of the oldest houses in the appellation, Domaine Pichot. It is made from chenin blanc grapes using the methode traditionnelle, and is fresh and racy with floral aromas and flavours of apple, pear and lime.
Grapes for the Vouvray Brut come from a densely planted 2-hectare plot of clay-limestone soils in one of the best parts of the Vouvray appellation. The grapes are machine-harvested and pressed before being left to cold settle, and fermentation takes place in stainless steel. The wine is then left to mature on its lees for at least three years before disgorgement.
Domaine Pichot’s Vouvray Brut has been ranked as one of the top sparkling wines in Vouvray by Revue de Vins de France, and was awarded 88 points for its 2010 vintage by Wine Spectator.
Vivino users rate it a top wine with a stunning 3.9!
