Produced using the same labour intensive méthode traditionelle of secondary fermentation in bottle as Champagne, it boasts fine smooth bubbles and floral, fresh fruit aromatics. On the palate, its fresh light quality reveals itself through its citrus zest and elderberry character.
This pink-hued bubbly makes an ideal accompaniment for a bowl of fruit, a red-berry dessert or can simply be enjoyed as an aperitif.
Gratien & Meyer is one of the leading producers of Cremant wines (traditional method sparkling) in the Loire region of France. The traditional winery was established by Alfred Gratien back in 1864, in the same year that he also founded the globally-recognised Champagne house, Champagne Alfred Gratien.
Gratien & Meyer proudly upholds many of the traditions established over a century and a half ago to produce delicious Loire sparkling wines. It still uses its original cellars to bottle-age their wines that were carved out of the ancient tuffeau limestone hillside overlooking the River Loire. However, while Gratien & Meyer have preserved many of its well-established traditions, it has also been proactive in modernising its winery to ensure that it produces wines of increasingly good quality.
