2018 Chateau Moncontour Predilection Vouvray Brut
In preparation for the Hong Kong Le GourMay France’s theme of Loire Valley, I went to look for a fruity, refreshing sparkling wine from Loire Valley. This coincides with my personal desire to look for the best representative of the five best regions for sparkling wines in France. Loire Valley makes the one of the best sparkling wines outside of Champagne using traditional method. I found this gem from Chateau Moncontour in Vouvray - it is one of the oldest Chateau in Loire valley.
Compared to 2017, 2018 is a warmer vintage. The warmer weather elevates the floral and fruit profile to another level.
