2010 Domaine Sainte Barbe Cremant de Bourgogne France
Light and bright but has some body to it. Perfect for apps or salads.
From the importer: 100% Godello
Montenovo is produced with grapes from the youngest vineyards of the estate together with carefully selected contracted grapes from local growers in several villages, such as Rubiá, A Rúa, Larouco, Petín and O Bolo. Plots are vinified separately according to vineyard and similar soil-types. Grapes are harvested by hand with fermentation using indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats. No malolactic fermentation.
A pure, mineral driven expression of Godello. As always, Montenovo exhibits fresh citrus notes and a slight sweet tart character on the strong mineral backbone from the slate soils.
