Producer: Domaine de la Fontainerie
Region: Loire Valley
Wine: 2013 Vouvray, Extra Brut
As with the other "C" bottlings from this estate, the grapes for this cuvée are picked a bit more ripe than those for the other basic cuvées. When done for still wines, it tends to make for an off-dry wine, but when done for sparkling wine, combined with a lower dosage, the results are truly splendid. The richer body makes for more complexity while the lower dosage (extra brut) focuses the mineral lines and acidity to greater advantage.
