Brutal Babass '19
Description: 100% Chenin blanc planted on schist in 1957. Both the 2016 and 2017 vintages make up this cuvée as the 2016 was having a hard time reaching fermentation and was jump started by the 2017. Typically the fruit for this wine is produced as either an off-dry Chenin named Navine, or a Pet-Nat named Nuée Bulleuse, but because of the blend of vintages it was bottled under a different label. 6 to 24 months on lees and bottled with 20-24 grams of residual sugar to produce some ancestral method bubbles. At this stage most of the sugars are gone and what’s left is supremely balanced. Slightly fizzy, with a mouth-watering finish.
Grapes: Chenin Blanc
Region: Loire Valley, France
Selling Format: 750mL
