Gaillac Méthode Ancestrale [Organic] NV


Ancestrale-method fizz, from off the beaten track Gaillac

Also known as Méthode Gaillacoise, this involves a single fermentation with no additional sugar or dosage being introduced. Along with Limoux, Gaillac can easily claim to be one of the pioneers of what modern winemakers call pétillant naturel. Somewhat off the beaten wine track now, but wine was being produced in Gaillac by the Romans long before vines were planted in Bordeaux or Burgundy, and it is home to some of France’s most unusual grape varieties.

This organic, Mauzac-based, bottle-fermented fizz is wonderfully off-dry with fresh apple fruit and a light, soft finish. Enjoy with or without sunshine, before, during, or after you eat.
