MONMOUSSEAU CUVEE JM
AOC TOURAINE – LOIRE VALLEY
AWARDS: 1 star GUIDE HACHETTE 2014 Loire Valley Wine Trade Fair 2015 : Silver Medal
Also available in 375ml
VARIETAL: 80% chenin blanc and 20% Chardonnay.
REGION AND TERROIR The Touraine area: The soil is based on the tuff stone (in which our caves are dug out), covered by granite, clay and flint. Very similar to the soil of Champagne by its characteristics, it ensures a nice balance between the acidity of the chalk and the ‘ earthy ‘ taste of clay to its wines. The climate is semi-continental. This avoids excessive coldness in the winter and extreme heat during summer days. It is exceptionally favourable to the growing of particular grape varieties.
APPEARANCE AND TASTE This pale yellow wine is bright and translucent. Its abundant and subtle bubbles are extremely fine and long-lasting in the flute. Typical of the Chenin Blanc grape, the Cuvée JM wine is aromatic and nicely fruity. It is the successful blend of a definite liveliness due to the slight acidity of this grape variety and its fruity aromas. A wonderful balance in mouth…
SERVING SUGGESTIONS Serve between 6 and 8°C so as not to alter the bouquet and aromas. You will enjoy this cuvée from the aperitif to the dessert.
