Tuffeau, Blanc de Blanc Brut Natural
By Pete's Provisions
WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
A cracking semi sparkling Chardonnay. Refined, clean and zesty and made from the classic white grape in Champagne, this cheeky little sparkling wine never fails to impress us, and is a good introduction to French fizz.
ABOUT THE WINERY
Domaine Plou, located on the banks of the Loire River, has been owned by the same family since 1508, just a few years before Leonardo da Vinci arrived at the nearby Château d’Amboise. The name of this cuvée, ‘Tuffeau’ refers to the creamy white stone, so typical of this part of the Loire Valley, which makes for beautiful buildings as well as crisp, mineral and balanced sparkling wines.
