CRÉMANT DE LOIRE BRUT
Château de Montfort
Loire Valley (Crémant de Loire)
70% Chenin Blanc, 30% Chardonnay
Château de Montfort is a stunning estate located on the limestone plateau above the Loire River in the Touraine region. This historic property consists of 75 acres of premium quality land throughout the Vouvray AOC and Touraine AOC. The estate is somewhat unique in that most of its vines are located surrounding the winemaking facility in one large parcel. Average vine age is over 50 years, limiting yields and providing great concentration and depth in the wine. Château de Montfort is most famous for its demi-sec Vouvray.
BRC-certified and with an IFS rating of 97.7/100, Château de Montfort is at the forefront of quality standards. Over the years, Château has specialized in the production of sparkling wine.WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES
