Organically Grown 70% Menu-Pineau, 30% Sauvignon Blanc Olivier Bellanger grew up in near Tours in the center of the Loire Valley. He obtained his agricultural diploma in 2000, and spent the next 8 years working for various Domaine in the Loire, notably Philippe Tessier. In 2008 he got the opportunity to buy 15 acres of vineyards in Thesée near his native village. He immediately converted them to organic farming. He is committed to local grapes and deplores the regulations that reward ripping up old vine native varieties that are not in fashion, or not allowed in the regional appellation. His wines are a real labor of love. He’s still fine-tuning his blends and adapting to vintage conditions. The results are always exciting and convincing. And delicious. Persistent and frothy, these bubbles are dry with aromas and flavors of brioche and a hint of fresh green herbs.Food pairing: Bunch or with appetizers.
