Grape Variety: 3 variations of Gamay (Bouze, Chaudenay, Freaux)
Producer: Les Capriades (Pascal Potaire & Moses Gadouche)
Region: Loire, France
Wild Scale: 4/5
Vegan friendly wine
Winemaking: Grapes from 40-70 year old vines were hand harvested and underwent fermentation with indigenous yeast. Ancestral method (pet nat) winemaking techniques were used. No added sulphur.
This Wine: A sparkling red pet nat with a punch of juicy red cherry on the palate. Delicate bubbles and a zing of acidity provide finesse. A joyful wine best shared with friends!
Notes on the Winemaker: Les Capriades is the project of Pascal Potaire and Moses Gadouche who produce only ancestral method sparkling wine (Pets Nats) from grapes grown by them or sourced from other farmers around the Loire Valley. We first tried one in Paris a few years ago and haven't found many Pet Nats that can compete! Full of class and character. They page huge attention to detail and disgorge every bottle by hand.
