2020 Lucy M le petit blanc pétillant
The grapes are destemmed and left to rest for 4 days allowing juice to soak up the flavour, colour and a little tannin from the skins. It is then pressed into a 680L ceramic egg and fermented for two weeks until there is the perfect amount of sugar to finish in bottle with a good level of spritz. Then it is aged on lees in bottle for four months and then disgorged.
The wine is golden with a solid persistent bead that elevates to white peach and almond blossoms singing from the effervescence. It tastes like wheat swaying in the wind on a warm summers day while biting into a crisp cold granny-smith apple, ooh la la!
