Monmousseau Brut Etoile NV
Purity, expression, and really driving acidity right through the palate. Better than most “grande marque” brut NV Champagness. Made using the Champagne method (i.e. fermented in the bottle in order to make it sparkle) from 30% Chardonnay and 70% Chenin Blanc, the flagship white grape of the Loire Valley around Vouvray, from which this wine hails. An electric wine and very highly recommended.
