The wine is vibrant straw yellow and adorned with a fine mousse. The nose reveals aromas of Granny Smith, green plums, and heather honey. A finely chiseled palate is bone-dry with hints of dried pear, apple and anise over a core of saline minerals. This is a thirst-quenching Pet-Nat, made without sulfur, that happens to be a serious and elegant wine that would put many Champagnes to shame...
Since 2004, Lise and Bertrand are wine growers in the golden centre of France's Loire Valley, in the spiritual home of Chenin Blanc, across the river from Vouvray. According to the Jousset philosophy, great wine is made only in the vineyard. Once they have achieved the considerable task of growing perfect fruit containing the essence of the place where it is grown, work in the cellar is reduced to merely patient observation and a guiding hand.
With this in mind, Lise and Bertrand spend all of their time in the fields, using organic and biodynamic methods and horse plowing, encouraging the vines to express the purity of place. Wines are thus vinified with zero oenological interventions, simply very low doses of SO2 where required. Of particular interest is Lise and Bertrand's passion for Natural Sparkling Wines (Ancestral Method, or 'Pet Nat " in France). - Importer Note
