Tour Des Gendres - Pétillant Naturel 11.5% 750ml Bottleall good beer.
Region/Appellation: South West
Variety/Blend: Sauvignon Blanc & Chenin Blanc
Dangerously drinkable, naturally sparkling wine from Bergerac.
Petillant Naturel, or Pet Nat for short, is a sparkling wine made in the 'methode ancestrale', which is to say, bottle with residual sugar which then continues to ferment in the bottle, finishing relatively dry with pleasantly frothy bubbles. This is wonderfully drinkable, and a natural progression for Prosecco drinkers looking for something a little more interesting while still being easy and fun to drink. Made here from Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc in Bergerac, this is bright with acidity, which balances the slight sweetness, similarly to prosecco, and bottled without fining, filtering or the addition of sulphur.
