The OG pet nat aka Méthode Gaillacoise, wines have been made here in this style for centuries. The wine is kept on lees and not disgorged. A Pét-Nat of extreme refreshment and genuine finesse. Found BTG at Septime and other top spots in Paris, elsewhere in France and around the world.
Straw yellow and is somewhat cloudy in the glass with ultra-fine bubbles. A supple citrus and yellow apple (almost cider-like) scents dominate the nose. This creamy and concentrated gem is savory with white fruits, with just a suggestion of citrus sweetness. A note of marzipan and vibrant acidity dovetail beautifully on the elegant finish.
