Myriade de Bulles NV (2017)
80% PIneau d'Aunis/20% Cabernet Franc. From biodynamically farmed estate vines. This is the first vintage of this dark-pink, dry pet-nat from Belliviere, a sort of happy accident. Very ripe, whole-cluster Pineau was pressed directly and vinified dry and darker in color than for their still reds It was bottled and intended to undergo a secondary fermentation in the bottle and become a pure-Pineau méthode champenoise sparkling wine. However, too much pressure developed in those secondary fermentations, so the bottles were emptied into tanks and that wine re-fermented with Cabernet Franc must from 2018. It was disgorged after a year on the lees and received no dosage.
