This is a rosé pét-nat from Quentin Bourse of Le Sot de l'Ange who works 12 hectares (and counting) of vines in Azay-Le-Rideau, Touraine in France's Loire Valley.
Tasting Notes: A lovely, dry sparkler of Grolleau (historically, a semi-infamous combo, Rosé d'Anjou known for its cloying, flat aspect) that is strawberries and stone fruit with a lingering spice - think light chai. The finish is clean as can be.
Vinification: 100% Grolleau hand-harvested from young vines grown in Argille Silex soil. The grapes are directly-pressed and ferment in a combination of concrete and stainless. Disgorged and bottled unfined, unfiltered, with no additional SO2.
(Fun fact: Quentin's estate has been certified biodynamic (rare in Loire, rarer yet in Azay-le-Rideau) for 10 years!)
