2018 Les Capriades 'Piège à Filles' Pet-Nat Rosé

Loire Valley, France

Following the ancestral method of making sparkling wine revived in the 90s, that is bottle re-fermented wine, this stunninng pet-nat rosé is a blend of picked Côt, Gamay, and Grolleau Noir grapes. Pale pink in colour, she has tender bubbles and strawberry on the nose, which also holds in the mouth. Hibiscus, rhubarb and fruit forward, but with crisp acidity. Absolutely stunning. Rated on Vivino in the top 2% of wines in the world.

About the maker

Les Capriades occasionally releases a still wine, the domaine, and Pascal specifically, is best know as one of the true masters of pétillant naturels, knowing just when to bottle the still fermenting wines in order to have the right amount of residual sugar and bubbles. Les Capriades’ pet-nats are always disgorged, a time-consuming process but one Pascal believes leads to more stability and better drinking. With disgorgement, their wines are clean and unlike some pet-nats are quite consistent and reliable. Their wines are frivolous, joyful and easy to drink. Thanks to Living Wines for their notes.

Les Capriades, are specialists in the Loire for bottle-fermented, lightly sparkling wines with generally lower alcohol content. The beautiful treats are perfect all year round and head winemaker Pascal Potaire is known for his skills in making these wines across the valley.
