NV Marcel Martin Tete du Cuvee Cremant de Loire

What's the verdict?
"Welcome to the fastest selling bottle of French Fizz in the country. This 'Tête de Cuvée' from the Loire Valley's Marcel Martin is known the world over for being one of the best value for money sparkling wines you can buy. And since we started importing this wine, we cannot keep up with the demand. Every shipment lasts probably the better part of a few weeks before it is all snapped up. But it makes sense, as not only is this a perfect aperitif, with its green apple, seaspray and chalky tang, it is also an absolute bargain. With some US retailers selling this wine for between $25-$37 a bottle, our price is a relative snip in comparison.

Get in on this brilliant, scintillating bottle of bubbles while you still can.

Marcel Martin's 'tête du cuvée' (i.e. the best of the house) is made with all the care of Champagne - hand picked grapes, bottle fermentation and 18 months on lees. A blend of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc, the NV Marcel Martin Tête du Cuvée Crémant de Loire has all the quality you'd expect from an NV Champagne, but with a juicier edge. A creamy palate of citrus, flowers and dried fruit, this exceptional Cremant is beautifully balanced and finishes long and full.

What do we think?

Would you check out the shiny blingy labelling on this bubbly! Perfect for neckin’ at da club!

Seriously though, this is more than just flashy packaged French fizz. A ‘tete de cuvee’ (the best wine of the house), this high quality sparkling is a classical Loire Cremant.

Handpicked, bottle-fermented and matured for at least 12 months, this blend of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc is stylistically Champagne-esque, if a little juicier than those from further north.

In all honesty, we’d rather drink this over many $70 big name Champagne; such is the delicacy and length. That’s what happens with top Cremant though, which doesn’t have the same cache as Champagne but can be just as high quality. 

 


What's the winemaker have to say?

This sparkling wine is the result of the knowhow and the rigorous work of the Marcel Martin winemaking team. They shape well balanced, fine wines that deliver consistent quality with each vintage.

Winemaking: The harvest takes place from the end of September through to mid-October. Second fermentation in the bottle with ageing on the lees for at least 18 months.

Tasting notes: Pale yellow with green highlights and a line of fine bubbles. Balanced wine with complex aromas of white flowers and dried fruit complemented with an ample, long finish.

Food pairing: To be enjoyed with white fish, a green salad, or on its own as an aperitif.
