"It's very rare that you come across a sparkling wine comprised of 100% Cabernet Franc grown within the Chinon AOC, because sparkling wine is not registered in the Chinon appellation and therefore cannot bear the "Chinon" name. This is a VMQ--Quality Sparkling Wine--with no geographical determination. It is made in the methode traditionnelle, with the second fermentation in the bottle and 12 months of bottle age prior to release. It has aromas of red and purple flowers, with a soft and round mineral touch, tiny sparkles and some citrus on the palate. Rich and loaded with texture, it has quite a long, supple finish, with great finesse. This is something really cool to show off to your super wine geek friends. As far as we know, no winery ever made such a wine before. Comparable to great Champagnes, and very inexpensive for being so unique."
