Sainsbury’s, Taste the Difference, Crémant de Loire NV
If you are on a budget, Crémant offers some of the best sparkling wines. This is from one of the oldest and most consistent sparkling producers, Bouvet Ladubay. It is make like a Champagne but with a twist. Instead of Pinot or Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc makes up 85% of the blend (with the addition of 15% Chardonnay). The result is fruity and refreshing with notes of ripe peaches and a hint of honeysuckle. Lovely persistence of the bubbles, with a clean and crisp mouthfeel. There is a touch of honey on the finish. This is a great alternative to Prosecco.
