Made especially for us at JN by Bouvet-Ladubay, the second oldest producer of sparkling wine in Saumur. The company works with over 120 local growers, who produce grapes with the guidance of Bouvet-Ladubay oenologists. The wine is crafted in Ladubay's high-tec winery in St-Hilaire-St-Florent. A high proportion of Chenin Blanc lends this sparkler a lovely richness and lots of ripe apple and white floral flavours with a hint of honey - yum. A firm favourite fizz for anyone who tries it, it’s a guiltless sparkler that will definitely impress.
Described by Victoria Moore in her Wines of the Week column as "Beautiful, taut, wild-honey-tinged, pristine fizz. Way better value than most prosecco, and tastier than cava. Made using the traditional method (the same way as champagne) from chenin blanc grapes, it carries a suggestion of red apple skin and clover." (Victoria Moore, Daily Telegraph, 16 Feb 2013).
JN Sparkling has been relaunched with a fantastic new label featuring the “Firework Flower”, a piece commissioned from local artist Kathryn Callaghan especially for JN Wine. The original artwork has pride of place in our shop in Crossgar.
