Château de l’Aulée is an award-winning sparkling wine made by Marielle Henrion, winemaker at Bollinger for 15 years.
Marielle has taken many of the techniques working she learnt at this top-flight Champagne house and applied them to making sparkling wine in the Loire. For example, just as they do at Bollinger, Marielle adds a dosage of older vintage, barrel-matured wine to add subtle creamy richness
Crémant wines are sparkling wines that under French laws must be made using the same techniques as Champagne. If you’re looking for a Champagne alternative, these are the wines to seek out
Made from 100 per cent estate-grown Chenin Blanc, this has lovely apple and floral freshness combined with tasty brioche notes
Tasting note: “Made from 100 per cent chenin blanc by a woman who worked for 15 years at Bollinger, this is an exceptionally good sparkling wine. Reminiscent of pears and apples baked with walnuts. Lovely.” Victoria Moore, The Telegraph
