Louis de Grenele Acajou

This red crémant Cuvée Acajou is made from cabernet franc, the No. 1 red grape variety in the Loire Valley. This grape variety gives the wines exceptional suppleness and finesse. In its color the wine dark ruby red with a very attractive mousse in the glass. In the nose it is very aromatic with notes of small red fruits like strawberries and currants combined with a hint of cocoa. On the palate, the wine is velvety with creamy tannins on the finish that are enhanced by delicate acidity. The wine is aged for 12 months "sur lattes" which gives it a soft mousse. It will do best paired with desserts of chocolate combined with red fruits or separately.
  • About Louis de Grenelle

    Louis de Grenelle's cellars are located in the center of Saumur, in the heart of the Loire. Louis de Grenelle (since 1859) is the last large fully independent family-owned company specializing in sparkling wine making. The company combines old traditional production methods with the modern way of producing. Louis de Grenelle boasts exceptional proprietary vineyards that guarantee grapes of exceptional quality.

    In 1976, visionary winemaker Hubert Bodet and two business partners took over this then decaying cellar, contrary to everyone's advice. However, time would eventually prove those who "dare, work and never give up" (X.Dolan) right. In 2009, Hubert Bodet passed the baton to his daughter, Françoise Flao, who has been involved in the business since 1983, assisted by her husband, Jean Pierre Flao.

    Françoise Flao plans for the future by focusing on leveraging the winemakers' artisanal expertise while adding a touch of modernity and innovation. However, Françoise continues to favor a quality working method, which has never compromised her signature Louis de Grenelle style over the years.
