Mikaël Bouges, Petillant Naturelle ‘Clic Clac’ Non Vintage

Bouges Petillant NV #1

100% Menu Pineau (a heritage cousin of Chenin Blanc) from 80 year old vines.  ‘Petillant Naturelle’ in style: fermented and bottled unfiltered without sulfur dioxide, with second fermentation coming from the natural sugars in the grapes, not added dosage.  Organic/BIO.

Yellow-gold.  A softer, more spherical bubble.  Candid heirloom apple, quince and mirabelle-blossom, with a discreet, demi-sec sweetness.  Finishes winsome, dry and mineralic.  Giggly-good, the unfettered joy of a child personified; all under crown-cap, no less.  For drinking soon.
