Domaine Vendange - Crémant de Savoie Brut Grande Réserve
Organic (no certification). This crémant blends Jacquère (45%), Altesse (30%), Chardonnay (25%) of 25 year old vines, with vinification in stainless over 9 months with bâtonnage, prior to a secondary ferment in bottle for a minimum of one year on lees. RS 6g/l.
Tight and chalky, this dry sparkler wraps lemon peel, pear skin, broken stones, around a green apple core, scented with elderflower. There's a light creaminess, thanks to the slick of lees, buffering the alpine acidity, and making this a friendly, interesting drink for popping now.
