Lise et Bertrand Jousset ‘Rose á Lies’ Petillant Naturel 2019
Vinification: Seperate parcels of biodynamically farmed Gamay (60 year-old vines) and Grolleau (80 year-old) on sand or silex over limestone soils. Hand-harvest, direct-press of whole bunches, natural vinification in old oak barrels, shocked by cold at 15g/L sugar to pause fermentation. Finished fermentation in bottle, and left to age for a couple of months. The wine remains undegorged and unsulphited.
Character: Serious pet-nat that behind its playful appearance shows true terroir-expression and profound clarity of fruit. Delicate tart strawberries and raspberries, green herbs and earth backed by creamy yeasty notes and underscored by chalky texture and driving acidity. A real beauty!
