Petillant Naturel, Grolleau, "100%"
80% Grolleau, 20% Gamay
From .6 hectares of 55 year old vines of Grolleau and Gamay vines planted in flint-clay soils, the vines are planted with vegetation between them and treated with organic practices only. The grapes are hand-harvested between September and October and are not de-stemmed. They go directly into pressing and then moved to stainless steel tanks where spontaneous fermentation takes over with indigenous yeasts lasting three weeks. The wine is not temperature controlled, is kept in tank for approximately two months and is unfiltered. Upon disgorging, the wine is given minuscule amounts of SO2 (10mg/L).
