Grape Variety: Gamay
Producer: Les Rêves Oubiles (Nadia Beaune)
Region: Loire, France
Wild Scale: 4/5
Winemaking: Certified organic grapes were grown with biodynamic principles and had harvested before fermentation with indigenous yeast. Aged for 6 months on the lees. Bottled with no fining, filtration or added sulphur.
This Wine: A pet nat (naturally sparkling) wine, light red in colour. A hint of sweetness provides the sensation of candied cherry fruit with other aromas of pomegranate and juicy red berries. Great by itself or with a lightly sweet dessert. Only 300 bottles produced and it has a whoopee cushion on the label...? Don't google translate the name. It's for the best.
Notes on the Winemaker: Nadia Beaune makes different cuvees from old Gamay vines in the Loire valley with minimal intervention. Only tiny productions right now as 2018 was her first vintage but there will be more to come.
