2018 Petit Lot Mousseux


176 cases produced

This popular dry sparkling wine is made from 100% Chenin Blanc and produced in the traditional method. A wine that is very reflective of the Loire Valley. Leading up to harvest the canopy of our 19- year-old cane-pruned Chenin Blanc vines was deliberately left untouched to ensure the fruit was shaded, which helps the grapes to retain their natural acidity. After three months of lees contact the dry base wine was bottled and inoculated for its secondary fermentation, which took place in each individual bottle over the course of two years. The residual sugar after dosage is as little as only 3 grams per litre, so it is predominantly fresh green apple aromas and zesty citrus notes that carry this elegant sparkling wine with its beautifully delicate fine bead and its smooth creamy texture through to a refreshing clean finish.
