Louis de Grenelle Saumur Blanc - Ivoire Brut Magnum: A Celebration in Every Bottle

Looking for a sparkling wine that offers exceptional value and delightful taste? Look no further than the Louis de Grenelle Saumur Blanc - Ivoire Brut Magnum, available now at The General Wine Company! This impressive magnum (1.5L) bottle is perfect for sharing with friends and family, adding a touch of elegance to any occasion.

Tasting Notes:

The Louis de Grenelle Saumur Blanc - Ivoire Brut is a delightful sparkling wine produced in the Loire Valley of France. Made primarily with Chenin Blanc grapes, known for their versatility and ability to produce crisp, mineral-driven wines, this Saumur Blanc boasts a beautiful pale yellow colour with delicate green highlights. Upon swirling the glass, a lively mousse (persistent bubbles) tickles the nose, hinting at the effervescent character to come.

The first sip reveals a delightful explosion of flavours. The Chenin Blanc shines through with its characteristic notes of white peach, honeydew melon, and citrus fruits like grapefruit and lemon zest. Hints of acacia flower and pear add a touch of floral elegance, while underlying minerality provides a refreshing backbone. The bubbles are fine and persistent, dancing on the tongue and cleansing the palate with each sip. The finish is crisp and dry, leaving a lingering taste of citrus and minerality.

Food Pairing:

The Louis de Grenelle Saumur Blanc - Ivoire Brut's versatility makes it a fantastic food pairing wine. Its bright acidity and clean flavours make it a perfect match for seafood dishes. Enjoy it with freshly shucked oysters, grilled prawns, or creamy seafood pasta. The wine's richness can also complement lighter poultry dishes like roast chicken or a simple quiche.

For a vegetarian option, try pairing the Saumur Blanc with goat cheese salad or roasted vegetables. The wine's acidity cuts through the richness of the cheese, while its fruit notes complement the earthy flavours of roasted vegetables.

Serving Suggestions:

To fully appreciate the Louis de Grenelle Saumur Blanc - Ivoire Brut, serve it well chilled, ideally between 8-10°C.  A tulip-shaped flute glass is best suited to showcase the wine's bubbles and aromas.

The Magnum Advantage:

The magnum format offers several advantages over the standard 75cl bottle. Firstly, the larger bottle allows the wine to mature more slowly, resulting in a more complex and nuanced flavour profile. Secondly, a magnum is perfect for sharing with a group of people, making it ideal for celebrations, parties, or simply enjoying a special occasion with loved ones.
