250 estates contribute grapes to Cave de Lugny’s wines, and this traditional sparkling Chardonnay is made from vineyards based around the village of Lugny, with an average vine age of about 35 years. A great everyday alternative to Champagne, this elegant fizz has a blossom and lemon curd nose and a gentle citrus palate that is a touch creamy with hints of nuts.
