Philippe & Nicolas Vignerons, Spontané Rosé 2017, France
Tasting Note: A fun, pet-nat rosé that impresses with its perfect combination of ripe, red fruit and yeast flavors that are more delightful than many rosé Champagnes you’ll find on the market.
Deep-intensity pink-salmon in color, this wine has a medium-plus-intensity nose of red cherry, red plum, brioche, strawberry, yoghurt, butter and elderflower blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied, pet-nat rosé has a creamy texture with medium-plus-intensity red-fruit and toast flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a medium-plus finish.
There is midpalate complexity, depth of flavor and wonderful buttery notes across the entire length of the taste.
Bottle Note: In this bottle, you’ll find only grape juice transformed into “Pet Nat” by native yeast fermentation, a little savoir faire, and nothing else. Santé et bonheurl Philippe et Nicolas.
