Bouvet Ladubay, Loire

Bouvet Saphir, Saumur AOP brut, 2012



tasting notes:

Bouvet Ladubay is regarded by many wine lovers as the finest expression of sparkling wine from the LoireValley. The grapes for the Bouvet Saphir methode champenoise are Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay. Hints of toast, lees, baked apple and biscuit. Full bodied palate, with excellent flavour profile. Creamy texture. Spicy with ginger, piecrust and wheat biscuit notes and a nice refreshing finish.  Wine Enthusiast: 91 points, Gault & Millau: 16 Points
