LES CAPRIADES 'PIÈGE À FILLES' PET-NAT ROSÉ 2019
The Les Capriades wines were some of the first French wines in this style we ever tried, and they left a very lasting and lovely impression. The right balance of fanfare and finesse, these are not wines to be missed.
The Rosé Piège à …. is a pink Pétillant Naturel which is a blend of organic Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Côt grapes that have been harvested from vines ranging in age from 20 years to 50 years old.
The wine is made without any dosage (the addition of sugar) and also without the addition of any sulphur. It has some residual sugar which is a hallmark of this cuvée, but at a level that makes the drink even more alluring.
The wine is bottled under a crown seal when Pascale and Moses think that the sugar has decreased to a level where it will continue to ferment, but not too much so that the build up of carbon dioxide causes the bottle to explode.
We believe that this is one of the finest examples of a Pétillant Naturel on the market!
It is packaged in clear bottles and, after being manually disgorged (the sediment being expelled from the bottle) is sealed with a resealable Zork closure. - Living Wines
