Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Bracing, elegant and food-friendly, the ’15 Petillant Originel holds its white-flesh fruits in an acidic grip that’s sprinkled with citrus zest and topped with flower petals and smoke. Fine perlage tickles the tongue as this wine dances to a lingering, mineral-laden finish that cleanses, refreshes and hugs the palate. Deriving from 40-year-old Chenin vines that are organically grown in limestone-rich soil, grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel; the wine is then bottled and rests on the lees for two years before the first disgorgement, after which the wine is disgorged every two months for a total of six disgorgements. Petillant Originel is a tiny sparkling wine appellation that stipulates extremely low yields, excludes the addition of yeast or dosage, and requires the grapes have a potential alcohol level of 11.5%; the resulting wines are pure, unadulterated joy!
