C’etait le premier jour des vacances d’été. J’avais seize ans
Pétillant Naturel Blanc 2021 from Ardéche.
A blend of Chardonnay, Viognier and the very first juice from a direct press of Grenache Noir, all co-fermented- first in a fiber cuve, and very fast after the wine was bottled, left to finish the fermentation for a year. We wanted to keep this white sparkling wine on the yeast in bottle for a year, to be able to bring the bitter notes more in place and at the same time have smaller and more delicate bobbles. It means that this pétillant natural has a character more like a BdB sparkling wine, and a less pronounced fruit and sweetness compared to what pét.nat normally represents. We made dégorgement in the end of September 2022.
