Champalou Brut NV

Vouvray, Touraine, Loire, FranceCatherine and Didier Champalou came from vigneron families and began this domain in 1983. They farm 21 hectares of vineyards, embracing some organic and biodynamic practices. This NV Brut blends three recent vintages, wrapping them into a doughy, toasty, vanilla wafer sparkler, with Chenin's characteristic laser acidity carrying this through a persistently humming and subtly saline finish. Cushy and friendly, ready for cracking into now.Tasted: 05 October 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
