Love the bone dry bubbles. Crisp, citrus, bright and clean. Oysters, calamari, sashimi is the best pairing

Crémant made in the "ancestrale" style. Bready notes dominate with pear in the background. Lovely acidity but light on the bubbles. Pleasing but not a show-stopper. Still worth a try for the price.

15/20 (85/100) Довольно чистый аромат для ансестраля: лимон, яблоко и бриошь. Легкое с высокой кислотностью. Легкий дрожжевой тон во вкусе. Простенькое.

Smells like chamomile, nilla wafer, melon and pear. Light, totally dry, not much bubbles. Length and intensity at this price unbeatable

This French sparkler arrived like an oasis in the desert. The first bubbly I've come across in sub-Saharan Africa that didn't look like a candy bar in a bottle--and the first bio/organic wine I've found here! I nearly flung the cork off and bathed in it!! =) Crisp and lively extra-brut bubbly from the Loire Valley--practically evaporates on the tongue while a fresh compote of apples and strawberries pleasantly lingers. Ancestral method sparkling without sweetness, just fruit and fine bubbley goodness! :)
