Tuffeau Blanc de Blancs Nature
Domaine Plou, located on the banks of the Loire River, has been owned by the same family since 1508, just a few years before Leonardo da Vinci arrived at the nearby Château d’Amboise. The name of this cuvée, ‘Tuffeau’ refers to the creamy white stone, so typical of this part of the Loire Valley, which makes for beautiful buildings as well as crisp, mineral and balanced sparkling wines.
“I have tasted this several times this year, and enjoyed it every time. Delicious, crisp sparkling wine with lovely clean apple fruits, finishing dry. Grown-up fizz with a touch of class, and great value for money. Serve with mixed tapas.”
“John Wilson, Irish Times,”
Tasting Notes: A cracking semi sparkling Chardonnay! Refined, clean and zesty and made from the classic white grape in Champagne, this cheeky little sparkling wine never fails to impress us, and is a good introduction to French fizz.
