This is pure, bright and zesty summer juice. Slight tropical hints and stone fruits with a gentle fizz and a low enough abv to keep pouring all day long.
After taking the helm, Vincent decided the fruit from 40-year-old Sémillon vines that his family used to sell for bulk Monbazillac production was destined for a more noble cause. Now the grapes are used for his excellent pet-nat. Direct pressing and fermentation on native yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Finishes fermentation and ages in bottle for 5 months.
