Made from the Loire's great Chenin Blanc grape by a winemaker who worked for 15 years at Bollinger, this is an exceptionally good sparkler. Reminiscent of pears, apples and toasted walnuts. "Lovely” was Victoria Moore's verdict in The Telegraph.

A top alternative to Champagne and remarkable value, this stylish Crémant is made from pure Chenin Blanc by the méthode traditionnelle. The winemaker behind it, Marielle Henron, has a track record of success in France’s most famous sparkling wine region – Champagne. She was winemaker at Bollinger and Pommery before setting up her own estate at Château de l’Aulée in the Loire. You can taste that expertise in her sparkling wines, where she employs the exact same techniques as those used at prestigious Champagne houses. Aged on its lees for 24 months, this Crémant has gentle nutty complexity alongside fresh orchard fruit. Just as they do at Bollinger, Marielle adds a dosage of older vintage, barrel matured wine to lend subtle creamy richness.
"This really does show what Crémant can achieve in the hands of a great winemaker"
