2016 Pétillant Natural White
2016 Pétillant Naturel of Petit Manseng & Sauvignon Blanc: Pétillant naturel (pét-nat), literally meaning “naturally sparkling,” is a term for sparkling wine made by méthode ancestrale. A predominate citrus and tropical fruit note leads to subtle savory notes, influenced by Petit Manseng. The high acidity is complemented by the bright bubbles and round mouthfeel from the bottle fermentation. Drinks deliciously now, but can be cellared for desired funk and interest down the road.
