Domaine du Viking Vouvray Brut NV

Although we are Champagne fanatics here at the shop, we don't limit ourselves to strictly Champagne. We are always on the hunt of excellent sparkling, from anywhere.

Longstanding wine producers like Domaine du Viking reaffirm our sparkling obsessions, while also offering us great wine with outstanding value.

Domaine du Viking began with just barely 2 hectares of vines in the 1940s, but the winery was able to progress further in their venture, post-World War II, when they took the family farm and began to exclusively focus on winemaking, and began planting more vines on their property.

Most of the now-13 hectares are not on the famous chalk (tuffeau) soils that make up over 90% of Vouvray, but on the hard silex soils of the northern tip of the appellation. This silex produces crisp, mineral, and long-aging Vouvrays that bring to mind great Riesling.

The winery has kept a traditional mindset on winemaking, with minimal manipulation and utilizing natural yeasts. After spending 12 months on its lees in tank, the wine then spends 2 years in bottle before disgorgement, with minimal dosage added.

Domaine du Viking's sparkling, 100% Chenin Blanc, is a fantastic crémant full of the exact rich, warm notes that you'd expect from Vouvray. The bubbles aid in breaking up some of the richness, keeping it fresh and full of minerality on the palate.
