Cuvée la Chevalerie Brut
Cave Robert & Marcel - Crémant de Loire
White,Crémant de Loire
Chenin blanc - Cabernet franc - Chardonnay
history
In 1957, around forty winegrowers grouped together to confront the economic difficulties of the era, pooling far more than mere financial concerns. At the time, Robert, Marcel, Yvon, Geneviève and the others, hailing from the same terroir, hewn from the same rock and sharing the same time-honoured values, set up their cooperative at the top of the hill in Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg. “They chose to share their experience, their expertise and their dreams„
Tasting notes
Pale yellow colour. Fine, persistent bead. Fine, lively, complex bouquet, combining the freshness of Chenin Blanc and the floral overtones of Chardonnay with Cabernet Franc fruit. Lively initial impression on the palate, with a rounded structure, and an elegant follow-through. Lovely, long aftertaste, with hints of fresh fruit (pears, peaches).
Food pairing
Enjoy chilled (46-50°F) from aperitif to dessert, with hummus, as an accompaniment to curried prawns or a cheese platter (comté, mimolette). Serve chilled (46-50°F)

The bottles are stored horizontally on wooden laths in our tufa cellars for a minimum of 12 months before disgorging, to develop an incomparably fine bead.
