De Chanceny Cremant De Loire Brut Impetus 2012
BUBBLES! 97 POINTS! OVER 50% OFF! We’re not worthy, we’re not worthy!
YES!!! It is exactly like that one time Alice Cooper asked me to hang out after his concert. What sorcery is this?! Oh, lucky day! This is spectacular stuff, good people. By far and away, the best bubbles we have had outside of Champagne in many a moon! Hell, it tops many of the far more famous Champagnes we’ve tasted over the last year even!
This is some serious bubble-making magic, y’all. A whopping 60 months on the lees, all 2012 vintage, méthode champenoise, WOWEE! The grapes are mostly chardonnay and chenin blanc (40% of each), with the rest splashes of cabernet franc and grolleau (10% of each). This wine has a brut-level dosage, providing plenty of rich and ripe fruit characteristics without sacrificing the tension, intensity, and sheer verve of the beautifully golden juice. Are those white nectarines?! Golden pluots, orange creamsicles, and honey-roasted almonds?!?! All that delicious cornucopia of fruity deliciousness, with buttered brioche and Burgundian truffles? My, oh my, this is my new favorite brunch wine. And happy hour wine. Aperitif, digestif, nightcap… I just want this all the time, ok? Don’t judge me.
At this price, and the fact that we’ve consolidated the most fervoured bubble monsters in the world (what, what!) – this is going to go quickly, folks. Over 50% OFF and 97 POINTS? Hold on to your hats, grab yours before they’re gone!
De Chanceny is the perfect pairing for simple but precious moments of life. A romantic picnic, an aperitif with friends or enjoying sunny days are moments worth to be sublimated with a glass of our subtle and refined bubbles.
For this cuvée, the original idea was to create a gastronomic Crémant de Loire. Impetus was born from the marriage of the four main grape varieties of the Loire Valley, each of which brings specific character and aromas. Fiery and exhilarating, it is a complex, structured wine with a rich aromatic palette. A Crémant de Loire of rare quality.
The colour is a beautiful golden yellow. The nose opens with notes of honey, apricot and lime blossom to evolve into a greedy profile of toasted brioche. The palate is unctuous with a creamy effervescence. The finish has a toasted note and hints of dried fruit with a nice persistence of the bubble.
