Prieure La Chaume
IGP Val de Loire - Vendee 'Prima Donna' 2013

Sorry, this item is no longer available

For his Prima Donna white, Christian took his inspiration from one of France's other great appellations, opting for what he describes as, the most famous and successful blend for white wine in the world, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. However, he also believes that Champagne is an 'industrial' wine, which requires the addition of sugar to achieve the secondary fermentation. By contrast, he is looking for the optimum ripeness in his grapes and a natural balance. The result is spectacular, with a fabulous depth and intensity, with the same richness of flavours of a fine, mature Champagne, with hints of honey, brioche and apple fruits, but with a mouth-watering salinity and clean drive of acidity. Everything is in tune here. Possessing real poise and sophistication, the wine dances on the palate maintaining its line and energy throughout its impressively long finish. With undoubtedly more years left to delight, now in her prime, this Prima Donna is worthy of her status and will make a great partner to a wide variety of dishes, from sushi or shell fish, poultry and white meat dishes or fromage a chevre.
