MONMOUSSEAU CUVEE JM TOURAINE BLANC
Loire-Atlantique

ORCHIDEES MAISONS DE VIN

Description


« Cuvée JM was the favorite sparkling wine Of King Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden(1882-1973)»

Cuvée J.M. was created in homage to Justin Marcel, the nephew of the founder of Maison Monmousseau. This experienced traveller contributed to the stature of Touraine’s sparkling wines throughout Europe and beyond. The quality of the area’s wines was quickly recognized, even by royal courts, especially in Sweden, where Monmousseau was the official supplier for many years.

Grape varieties: 45% Cabernet Franc 40% Chenin, 10% Grolleau, 5% Chardonnay

Soils/Terroirs: Tuffeau stone, covered in some places by granite, clay and flint-stone sand.

The chalk terroir of Touraine produces base wines with good acidity. Winemaking conserves this acid potential (no deacidification, no malo-lactic fermentation). The batches are sorted according to their tasting profile to maintain the harvest’s aromas. Then, they are matured for 5/6 months on lees. The art of blending carried out by the cellar master combines the wine’s acidity, fruity flavors and ageing potential. Long ageing on lees reinforces the strength on the palate, thereby justifying the initial acidity. Discreet mineral notes come to the fore.

Maturing period: 36 months
Residual sugar : 9 gr/L
Alcohol : 12,5% vol.
