Patrice Colin is one of those winemakers who strongly defends his profession and the authenticity of the Coteaux-du-Vendômois appellation. His passion emerges from the commitment to make known the ability of his vineyards to produce natural and balanced wines and for this reason the conversion to organic agriculture was a logical consequence.
The vinification is non-interventionist, the grapes are generally de-stemmed and selected, they ferment in stainless steel tanks or in barrels thanks to their indigenous yeasts (those naturally present on the grape skin). The chaptalization (addition of sugar) is prohibited during the year.The Petilant Perles Grises Brut sparkling wine is produced by natural fermentation, without the addition of measuring liquor (a mixture of sugar and yeast used in the Champagne method to produce effervescence).
It comes from the Pineau d'Aunis vines, a vine that occupies a special place in the domain, a true emblem of the local vineyard.
The fruity and finely spiced bouquet, its delicacy and fine perlage are appreciated for this sparkling wine.
An eighth bubble to be enjoyed as an aperitif with savory reductions or tapas, but which can also accompany an entire meal.
