Les Capriades Pet-Sec Blanc
Regular price $33.00
Winemaker: Pascal and Moses
Appellation: Touraine, Loire Valley, France
Grape Varietals: Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc
The driest and most mineral driven of the range from Capriades is “Pet Sec” made from a majority of Chenin Blanc with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc. This is an oyster-appropriate wine with intense limestone minerality.
The wines are riddled before disgorgement using a giropallet, and are disgorged by hand, in some cases twice due to the large amount of deposit in the bottle. Les Capriades maintains unassailable status as the best Domaine at making this style of sensitive yet highly satisfying sparkling wine.
