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.

Loire Valley, France

The 600-mile stretch of the Loire River valley and its tributaries make up one of France's top wine regions. The wines include famous names such as Muscadet, Pouilly-Fumé, Vouvray, and Sancerre.

Best known for white wines, the most popular grape varieties are Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, and Melon de Bourgogne. Red wines are made with Cabernet Franc and Gamay. Some of the best examples come from Saumur Champigny.

Chenin Blanc

Chenin blanc is a white wine grape variety from the Loire Valley of France. Its high acidity means it can be used to make many styles from crisp and fresh dry white wines, to delicious sparklers, and even well-balanced dessert wines,

Outside the Loire, Chenin Blanc is best known in South Africa. A new generation of quality producers is making excellent, complex Chenin from old vines and the future looks very bright indeed.

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.
