Tuffeau, Blanc de Blancs Nature
Domaine Plou, located on the banks of the Loire River, has been owned by the same family since 1508, just a few years before Leonardo da Vinci arrived at the nearby Château d’Amboise. The name of this cuvée, ‘Tuffeau’ refers to the creamy white stone, so typical of this part of the Loire Valley, which makes for beautiful buildings as well as crisp, mineral and balanced sparkling wines.
“I have tasted this several times this year, and enjoyed it every time. Delicious, crisp sparkling wine with lovely clean apple fruits, finishing dry. Grown-up fizz with a touch of class, and great value for money. Serve with mixed tapas.”
