Cuvée de la Chevalerie Brut Rosé
Cave Robert & Marcel - Crémant de Loire
Rosé,Crémant de Loire
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„
Our "Cuvée La Chevalerie" rosé cuvée is made from grapes grown on selected plots to the south of Saumur. The clay-limestone terroir promotes perfect ripening and ageing in our tufa chalk cellars gives this cuvée its superb freshness, fruit, and character
Hand picking, gentle pressing, and cool fermentation (65°F) ensure that all the aromas are preserved. Second fermentation in bottle of a selection of the best wines, according to the Méthode Traditionnelle. The bottles are stored horizontally on wooden laths in our tufa cellars for 12 months before disgorging, to develop an incomparably fine bead.
