2002Grise2002 Chateau Tour Grise, Brut Saumur Non Dose Sparkling Wine, Loire Valley France.
This graceful and elegant bubbly is a charmer throughout, in fact it is downright fantastic and sublime, a top flight sparkler to search out without question. I was blown away with this Methode Traditionnelle Brut No Dosage vintage sparkling Chenin Blanc from Chateau Tour Grise, from start to finish this is a class act with bright citrus, ginger, white peach, fig and brioche plus hints of bread dough, clove and saline, all playing their parts ion the layers of flavor while firm acidity gives tension and energy in this stylish grower producer champagne like effort. Thanks to importer Return to Terroir for sharing this beauty, it was a joyous discovery that I hope to revisit often, this is a truly lovely and memorable wine.
