Chateau Moncontour Sparkling Vouvray

made from chenin blanc grapes

Last night, I picked up a new sparkler for David and I to try: Chateau Moncontour brut vouvray. ($14) Ever since tasting it as a young boy visiting France, David's been quite fond of sparkling vouvray. As I poured out his first fluteful: Ah, this brings me back... 

the chateau's best

I, too, was fond of the dry sparkler which had good weight on the palate and some noticeably darker fruits. Was it as good as a champagne? No. But as a sparkling wine, I'd certainly rank it amongst those of a higher quality.
