Grape: Gamay, Grolleau Gris
Where: Loire, France
Foods: strawberries and cream
Story: Biodynamic and minimal intervention
Agnes and Rene Mosse have been working 13ha of vines in Anjou under biodynamic principles since 1999.
This is a ‘petillant naturel’ - lightly sparkling, unfined and unfiltered – nothing added nothing taken away. A pale pink in the glass, with fine light bubbles, there’s sweet strawberry and raspberry notes from the Gamay, and a rhubarb twist from the Grolleau. A lick of acidity is cleans the finish, and makes this one for drinking, not sipping.
Perfect summer sparkling, crack out the strawberries and cream as you watch Wimbledon.
Available from D Vine Wine for a steal at £12.50
