For all the elegant fizz of champagne without the price tag, cremant is the name to know.

The prominent acidity of Chenin Blanc grapes from the Loire allows for the production of exceptional `méthode traditionelle` sparkling wines.

This Cremant de Loire is made from 100% organic grapes. It is a pale lemon in colour with notes of baked apples on the nose. The palate has a lovely, soft mousse with notes of lemon, apple, honeysuckle and brioche.

The racy acidity of the Chenin Blanc leaves a very crisp and clean impression on the palate.

In the Press

Recently named Best Organic Wine for Special Occasions by The Independent, it scored 8/10

"This crisp Loire version is made by Clos des Quarterons, a 37-hectare estate run by the sixth generation of the Amirault family that has been organic since 2012. Their show-stopping sparkling wine is made from punchy chenin blanc grapes that sparkle with flavours of lemon, brioche, honeysuckle and apple. Simply opening a bottle is a celebration in its own right."

Clos des Quarterons

The estate, certified Ecocert and Demeter, is cultivated to biodynamic guidelines, respecting the environment. Clos des Quarterons is a 37 hectare family run estate and the sixth generation of the Amirault family, Agnes and Xavier are now in charge.

The domaine plants Cabernet Franc and has been joined by just over a hectare of Chenin Blanc, planted on gravel and siliceous soils that trap the heat of the sun.

Loire

The Method Traditionelle requires a secondary fermentation within the closed bottle to create a fine natural mousse and generate the rich yeasty lees flavours enjoyed in the best sparkling wines.

This is the method used to make Champagne, although it has long been the preferred method to create distinguished sparkling wines in many of France`s wine regions. The Languedoc`s Blanquette de Limoux claims to be the oldest, yet there is an established tradition of Method Traditionelle wines in the Loire Valley where the sparkling wines of Saumur and Cremant de Loire are also aged in natural chalk cellars.
