Sparkling - Vouvray Pétillant - Domaine Vigneau Chevreau - Loire - France
Domaine Vigneau - Chevreau
The Pétillant Brut has fewer atmospheres of pressure than méthode traditionnelle wines and is gently sparkling. Dry, with crunchy apple flavours, it is an excellent and original aperitif or you could try decanting it and drinking it throughout a meal.
The Vigneau-Chevreau family have been making wine since 1875, and the 30-hectare domaine is planted entirely with Chenin Blanc. The late Jean-Michel Vigneau saw the benefits of organic viticulture in the early 90s and by 1999 the Domaine was certified organic. The new generation of the Vigneau family have gone one step further by becoming one of only two estates in Vouvray to be certified Biodynamic.
