These sparkling rosé bubbles are so tasty and refreshing, it's like biting into a perfectly ripe watermelon that's been spritzed with herb oil.
Though previous releases have leaned toward the off-dry style, this one is pretty dry, and did I already say refreshing?
Pascal Pibaleau lives the biodynamic lifestyle: he freed his household, his diet, and his vineyards from chemical intervention long ago. He farms in the Loire Valley in Azay-le-Rideau and makes 'La Perlette' from Touraine grolleau-- some of his oldest grolleau was planted in 1945. And he's no stranger to this region; his great grandfather purchased the original holdings back in 1886.
In the winemaking process, he is fascinated by the dynamics between wine and lees, and keeps his wines with the yeast for much longer than most winemakers. La Perlette is a PetNat made naturally, with no added sugar.
