Welcome to the fastest selling bottle of French Fizz in the country. This 'Tête de Cuvée' from the Loire Valley's Marcel Martin is known the world over for being one of the best value for money sparkling wines you can buy. And since we started importing this wine, we cannot keep up with the demand. Every shipment lasts probably the better part of a few weeks before it is all snapped up. But it makes sense, as not only is this a perfect aperitif, with its green apple, seaspray and chalky tang, it is also an absolute bargain. With some US retailers selling this wine for between $25-$37 a bottle, our price is a relative snip in comparison.
Get in on this brilliant, scintillating bottle of bubbles while you still can.
Marcel Martin's 'tête du cuvée' (i.e. the best of the house) is made with all the care of Champagne - hand picked grapes, bottle fermentation and 18 months on lees. A blend of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc, the NV Marcel Martin Tête du Cuvée Crémant de Loire has all the quality you'd expect from an NV Champagne, but with a juicier edge. A creamy palate of citrus, flowers and dried fruit, this exceptional Cremant is beautifully balanced and finishes long and full.
After hand harvesting, primary fermentation occurs in stainless tanks. Using the traditional method, secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle. The “Tête de Cuvée” is aged for 18 months on the lees before being disgorged. This aging exceeds the minimum requirements for this AOC, which is 12 months.
The 74 acres (30 hectares) of vineyards that produce Marcel Martin are located in the Anjou and Touraine regions of the Loire. The vineyards are planted with approximately 60% Chenin Blanc, 20% Chardonnay, and 20% Cabernet Franc on a mixture of clay, limestone, and sand with an average vine age of 20 years old.
Pale yellow with green highlights and a line of fine bubbles. Balanced wine with complex aromas of white flowers and dried fruit complemented with an ample, long finish.
Food pairing - To be enjoyed with white fish, a green salad, or on its own as an aperitif.
