DOMAINE DE VODANIS VOUVRAY PETILLANT BRUT

The estate of Domaine de Vodanis is situated on limestone soils around the town of Rochecorbon, with vines averaging around 25 years old. The philosophy of this estate revolves around respecting and observing the rythms of nature, so they use entirely sustainable farming practices, borrowing many techniques from the biodynamic canon. This brut’s perfumed richness infuses this sparkling chenin with scents of almond skin, wool and hints of bruised apple. The bubbles are tight and fine, marrying the toastiness of the lees with the pleasant sweetness of the fruit.
