Now that it's reaching the time of year where sparkling is king, this bargain imported French sparkling warrants serious attention. This represents extraordinary value for money!
Pale gold in colour with fine effervescence. Lovely delicate floral aromas lead into a light palate, offering flavours of green apple, lemon zest and a touch of peach. It's clean and easy drinking throughout, finishing dry and crisp.
A blend of Chenin, Chardonnay and white ugny, this is great as an aperitif with bacon wrapped prune, or matches perfectly to pan fried scallop. Grapefruit, poultry in a creamy sauce and fruit salad with pear are also recommended.

From the Winery
The best blending, made with the wine base after the first fermentation, is achieved in our cellars. This blending art is perfectly mastered by our Chief winemaker according to a 2 century tradition and is one of the key factors of success for Marquis de la Tour .The second fermentation is temperature controlled and is made in stainless steel tanks during 4 weeks. This method, combined with Ackerman’s unique know-how, allows us to elaborate naturally a wine with fine and delicate bubbles to underline its freshness, smoothness, finesse and fruitiness.
