Overview

As appellations go, Cremant de Loire is usually a dumping ground for carelessly or industrially grown fruit that is beaten into some sort of vinous form, bottled with a healthy dose of sugar and sulfur to hide the flaws and packed off to indifferent bistros and supermarket shelves. Louis is the exact opposite of this. It is from 100% estate grown fruit that is certified organic (AB). A blend of Chenin and Chardonnay grown on chalky clay soils, Louis is aged sur latte for 26 months before disgorgement and finished with a very small dosage.
