Henry Varnay is located in Saumur on the Loire river. Most wines from the region are made with Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, but in this case, this delightful sparkler is made from 100% Ugni Blanc. With a pale yellow color and a steady stream of fine bubbles, the nose has essences of crisp green apple and melon. On the palette, you will find a taste of citrus, apple and just a hint of brioche. The crisp acidity and sparkle create a light bubbly that pairs beautifully with sushi, seafood, creamy cheeses and pastries. And at this price it will be your go-to sparkler for any party or large event.
