DescriptionThe Loire Valley has often been called the garden of France. This pastoral landscape, with its gently rolling hills and majestic chteaux, is the largest sparkling wine region in France, outside of Champagne. One of the best known names in fine Loire Valley sparkling wines is Marquis de la Tour from Maison Ackerman. Maison Ackerman, which has been identified with premium quality Loire Valley sparkling wines since 1811, is the Loire Valleys single largest wine producer. Ackerman today has a fully fledged sustainable development approach based on maintaining the right balance between the social, economic and environmental aspects of wine production. At Ackerman, this means respecting terroirs, holding onto their personal values and pursuing a viable economic approach. Named for a 16th century tower (tour) which still exists today, Marquis de la Tour reflects a long heritage of sparkling wine production. It has been a welcome guest and the toast of the party at social gatherings and family celebrations, both formal and casual. Its handsome packaging projects a timeless, classic elegance and is a charming and affordably priced sparkling wine.
VinificationThis sparkling wine is made from 100% Loire grapes. Because of its northern location, the grapes maintain an excellent acidity. Consistency and quality are carefully monitored to create very fine bubbles.
