. The warmer, solar growing season produced a Geisenheim reaching superlative fragrance and texture, seamlessly conveyed by this low-intervention wine.
Pétillant Naturel is the ancestor of all sparkling wines, and most importantly, the sparkling style that is by far the least manipulated. It simply consists of a wild fermented wine with nothing added (including no sulphites), then bottled prior to completing its primary alcoholic fermentation. Thanks to a small amount of natural sugars and the wild yeast from the grapes present, the fermentation finishes inside every bottle.
The result is a raw and living wine that is perceptibly cloudy and hazy when poured. This cloudiness comes from fermentation sediments and is a desirable validation of this natural style, and serving as a testament to the absence of unnecessary processing interventions.
“In the glass, a hazy golden colour with a flaxen hue. On the nose, hints of orange confit and kafir lime are complicated by mineral notes of crushed rocks. The palate is airy; a weightless wine once again channeling fresh suggestions of lemon zest
and grapefruit oil. More exotic and tropical notes emerge on a persistent finish.”
