CHAMPAGNE AND OTHER SPARKLING WINES

Fizz - VOUVRAY BRUT, “Le Naturel”, Sébastien Brunet. Loire Valley

VOUVRAY BRUT, “Le Naturel”, Sébastien Brunet. Loire Valley

Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Grape Variety: 100% Chenin Blanc made, unusually, by bottling the wine before the fermentation has finished - so the fizz is simply the natural sparkle produced in that first fermentation
Producer: The words of UK agent Richard Kelley MW -
"Sébastien Brunet is a man few words. He assumed control of Domaine Roche Fleurie in 2006, after the untimely passing of his father, Michel. The pair had worked together for six harvests following Sébastien’s graduation from the lycée viticole in Amboise, where he had studied under the figure-head of the nouvelle génération vouvrillon; the aforementioned Vincent Carême."
"The vineyards stretch along the valley of the Brenne, a small tributary that runs perpendicular to the Loire and hosts vines on both the premier côteau and the plateau behind. The most northerly plots are in the village of Reugny and follow the course of the Brenne down through Chançay which is where the cellar hewn out of the tufa is located."
He now has 15 hectares and is covering to organic viticulture
Old Bridge Rating: The result of the method described above is a Vouvray with a gently fizz, low sugar levels (around 7 grammes) and subtle, stoney flavours (little of the yeasty element that characterises Champagne).
