Val de Mer French Sparkling Brut Nature Rose
100% Pinot Noir. From vineyards near the village of Tonnerre to the north and east of Chablis. Clay and limestone soil. Average vine age 30 yrs old. Grapes are hand harvested, crushed, and left to macerate on the skins for a few hours only in order to take on a bit of color and fresh red fruit aromas. Afterward, the juice is racked and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Once bottled in the spring for its second fermentation, the wine remains in the bottle on the lees for a minimum of 13 months before being disgorged. No dosage is added.
