Vouvray Mousseux Brut

This marvellous Vouvray Mousseux Brut is hand-riddled and bottle-fermented. It has an inviting brioche bouquet and a teasingly frothy effervescence, making it ideal for all manner of celebrations or picnics – no corkscrew required.

  • Style: White Wine, Dry (Sec), Light-bodied, Sparkling
  • Region: LoireVouvray
  • Producer: Jean-Claude & Didier Aubert
  • Grape variety (Cépage): Chenin Blanc
  • Wine pairing - drink with: Smoked Fish, Thai Food
  • Cellarage: Can happily age for up to 3 years although will be ready to drink from release.
  • Vinification: The sparkling wines of Vouvray are produced by the Méthode Traditionelle (formerly known as Champenoise). The fruit is pressed and fermented to produce a still wine. A mixture of yeasts and sugar, known as liqueur de triage, is added to the still wine in the bottle (which is then sealed with a crown cap) to induce a secondary fermentation and the wine is then left lying horizontally 'sur lattes' for one year. The by-product of this process is carbon dioxide which gives the wine its mousse or 'sparkle'. Traditional 'pupitres' are used to tilt and turn the bottles (a process known as remuage) to collect deposits of yeast on the bottle closure. The neck of the bottle is then frozen in brine solution and these deposits are removed (known as dégorgement) before the bottles are topped up and sealed with a proper flared cork.
  • Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 12.5%

I've been a regular customer for more years than I care to count and have always liked Yapp's range of wines which are individual, sometimes quirky, generally interestingly full of terroir and a wonderful contrast to blandly commercial supermarket lines. Robin Yapp's legacy is in general in safe ha...

Very good substitute for champagne or the currently ubiquitous prosecco. If anything it's a touch too dry for my taste but it is supposed to be so I shouldn't complain.

What others think of this wine...

The Wine Gang - www.thewinegang.com says:

What a gorgeous affordable aperitif this Vouvray offers. Attractive green fruit on the nose, rounded off with a whiff of peaches. The palate is ultra crunchy and crisp, like liquid Granny Smith apples. Juicy, refreshing and well worth the money.

Red magazine - December 2011 says:

Christmas for us means our favourite food of the year. Here’s our top 76 tastes, all tested and approved by the Red team... Fizz: Vouvray mousseux Brut - Dry, bracing Loire sparkler.
