Emmanuelle Mellot 2021 Sparkling Vouvray "Dans Ma Bulle" Loire Valley
This vintage sparkling Vouvray is made from 100% Chenin Blanc and is Emmanuelle’s second release under her own project. It’s stunning. Explosive, expansive, layered, texturally beguiling and tremendously long! This is top notch winemaking here and to capture the soul of Vouvray dancing along, in a bubble across the palate, what a treat. No sulfites added.
Methode Ancestrale (Meaning)- " An inexpensive but risky and difficult-to-control method of producing sparkling wine, and almost certainly the oldest, in which the primary fermentation is stopped before completing, and a secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle, ending when the yeast cells deplete the supply of residual sugar. There is no dosage, or sugar addition, to kick-start the secondary fermentation, and the wine is not disgorged to remove any sediment or lees remaining afterward." Wine Spectator
