Description

"Bright lemon-hued straw-yellow colour with fine bubbles and some persistence. Full, intense aromas of yellow stonefruits and citrus fruits are complemented by definite bread and yeasty autolysis notes. Medium-dry to medium in taste, bright stonefruit and citrus fruits with a sweet, lush richness are balanced by clean, crisp acidity and fine bready autolysis. Fine textures are enhanced and lifted by excellent effervescence and the finish carries delicate honied flavours with fresh citrussy notes. This medium sweet sparkling is bright and fresh with delicate honied notes and autolysed yeast interest. Serve as an aperitif or match with fruit desserts over the next 2 years. Made from Chenin Blanc, Folle Blanche, Ugni Blanc and Chardonnay, fermented to 11.5% alc., the wine aged on lees 9 months. Grandin is a method traditionnelle specialist based in the Loire Valley" Raymond Chan, Apr 2012 

In 1883, Henri Grandin, a lawyer and wine lover, married Mademoiselle Pouillet de Limesle whose family owned Les caves de La Bouveraie, a domain in the Loire Valley. Its cellars were in what used to be Louis XIV’s royal glassworks in the magnificent Château of Ingrandes-sur-Loire. In 1886, he launched the elegant sparkling wine that today still bears his name, Henri Grandin. His wines quickly gained renown, both in Paris and internationally.

Grandin is Australasia’ s number one French “Methode Traditionnelle” brand. Very strict standards are enforced to ensure Grandin’s signature style and excellent quality are assured year after year. Pale straw colour with gold reflection and persistent bubbles. Delicate almond fragrance with undertones of hazelnut, subtle touch of clove and lime tree. Crisp and elegant.
