Description: Chateau de l'Aulée, Touraine Brut "Intense", Loire Valley, France, Nv {sustainable}80% Chenin Blanc, 20% Chardonnay Rich & Finely Textured, Golden Apple, Hazelnut Produced in exactly the same way as Champagne but from the Loire Valley's Touraine region, this bold Brut impresses with very fine bubbles and persistent aromas of tart golden apple, pear, lemon, and honey. Floral aromas of acacia come through on the nose, and this sparkler finishes with almonds and hazelnuts. Versatile with a variety of flavorful cuisines, but this is an especially great wine to help open the doors to the evening as an aperitif.
