Luscious Chardonnay grapes are gently pressed, ushering in a slow and delicate fermentation process within old puncheons, featuring the magic of indigenous yeast. Over a span of two weeks, at a chilly 14°C, they evolve into a wine that’s nothing short of extraordinary.
Our Chardonnay doesn’t follow the conventional path; it refuses to be tamed. We leave it untouched by stabilization and unfiltered, allowing it to flourish with its natural character. Racked-off juice with 15 grams of residual sugar matures and completes its fermentation journey right within the bottle, resulting in a delightful frizzante, with pressures reaching up to 3 bars.
For an incredible six months, our Pétillant Naturel rests in these bottles, nestled “sur lies,” undergoing a captivating autolysis process. This distinctive approach imparts a fine layer of lees within the bottle.
When pouring, you have a choice: embrace the pristine clarity by gently pouring, leaving behind the solids, or revel in the intriguing haze it brings, a testament to its unbridled character.
