Marcel Martin - Le Droissy - Vouvray

About This Item

Overview:  Marcel Martin has become synonymous with high quality Crémant de Loire at an affordable price. This wine also has the distinction of being labeled “Tête de Cuvée,” which is produced from the first pressing of the grapes. The 74 acres (30 hectares) of vineyards that produce Marcel Martin are located in the Anjou and Touraine regions of the Loire. The vineyards are planted with approximately 60% Chenin Blanc, 20% Chardonnay, and 20% Cabernet Franc on a mixture of clay, limestone, and sand with an average vine age of 20 years old. After hand harvesting, primary fermentation occurs in stainless tanks. Using the traditional method, secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle. The “Tête de Cuvée” is aged for 18 months on the lees before being disgorged. This aging exceeds the minimum requirements for this AOC, which is 12 months.

Tasting Notes:  Its flavor profile is as unique as you can get. There is the unmistakable pineapple in the nose and on the palate, followed by peach, nectarine and guava. It all culminates in a grand and glorious finish with hints of lemon zest and lychee.

Pairing:  Spring Vegetable Pasta with a White Wine Sauce, Heirloom Tomato Caprese Salad
