Personality: Straw yellow and is somewhat cloudy in the glass with ultra-fine bubbles. A supple citrus and yellow apple (almost cider-like) scents dominate the nose. This creamy and concentrated gem is savory with white fruits, with just a suggestion of citrus sweetness. A note of marzipan and vibrant acidity dovetail beautifully on the elegant finish.

Vineyard: 40+ years old vines on clay and limestone. Estate-owned, organic-certified, farmed by the Plageoles family.

Making of: Méthode Gaillacoise, ie. the oldest sparkling-wine-production method, also known as “rurale”, “artisanale” or pet-nat. Direct pressing, followed by overnight débourbage. Native yeast fermentation. When the wine reaches 30g of residual sugar, it is filtered to stop the alcoholic fermentation and bottled; the prise de mouse (creation of the bubbles in the bottle) takes about 3 months. Zero dosage added.
