The Bouvet Trésor Blanc Brut Saumur AOC is the first crémant from Bouvet-Ladubay, which is matured in a wooden barrel.
In the glass, the Bouvet Trésor Blanc brood glows straw yellow and delights with a long-lasting and very fine perlage. The bouquet unfolds aromas of brioche and citrus fruits, on the palate this opulent crémant shows a creamy, full-bodied texture and balanced tannins through the wood finish, supported by a pleasant, fresh acidity. The reverberation is pleasant, fruity and long. A charismatic crémant that can put some champagne in the shade.
Vinification of Bouvet Trésor Blanc Brut Saumur AOC by Bouvet-Ladubay
Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay are vinified together in a cuvée for this elegant French vintage sparkling wine from the Saumur wine-growing region in the Loire Valley. After fermentation, the base wine matures in wooden barrels before being aged on the fine yeasts using the classic method of bottle fermentation.
The origins of Bouvvet-Ladubay are linked to its cellars in the tuff caves, a treasure which, according to legend, was built by the monks of the Abbey of St.Florent in the 11th century and discovered by Etienne Bouvet. At the end of the 1980s, the cellar master Patrice Mommusseau brought this treasure to the public by creating the "Trésor" as the first cuvée of the Bouvet house matured in a wooden barrel.
