Domaine Vendange Grande Reserve Crémant de Savoie Brut 2018

Savoie, FranceLocated in Combe de Savoie, on the foothills of the Massif des Bauges, Domaine Vendange stretches over 10 sustainably farmed hectares, on south facing slopes of youthful glacial till / limestone scree. This crémant blends Jacquère (45%), Altesse (30%), Chardonnay (25%) of 25 year old vines, with vinification in stainless over 9 months with bâtonnage, prior to a secondary ferment in bottle for a minimum of one year on lees. A riffing pear skin sets off subtle quince, yellow apple, elderflower blossoms, lemon pith on a savoury, stony, slender, lees-lined palate. The subtle dosage and happy 12.5% makes it very drinkable now, and smartly so.Tasted: 13 June 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 28.00 LCBO Producer: Domaine Earl Vendange & FilsDistributors: Cru & Terroir
