La Carte Turquoise has been made at the Domaine since 1957. The "classic" of the house. Fine bubbles, freshness, length in the mouth. Very good digestibility.

Crémant de Loire, recognised as an AOC in 1975, is the worthy heir to Champagne, to whom it owes its existence. Faced with the growing demand for fine bubbly wines, the great houses of Reims and Epernay set up subsidiaries in the Loire Valley at the beginning of the 19th century. They had noted similar conditions for making sparkling wines.
