2020 Pét-Nat of Melon de Bourgogne
2020 was our fourth vintage producing Pét-Nat with Melon de Bourgogne. Each vintage we build a greater understanding of the idiosyncrasies of each wine we produce from each variety we farm.
After a brief maceration on the skins, extracting phenolics and golden gifts from the ripe skin, we slowly fermented the juice in tank, bottling by hand unfiltered, unfined, and without sulfites. The wine is evocative of the sweet and luscious qualities of mandarin and clementine. Yeasty aromatics give way to notes of citrus, not unlike your favorite mimosa. The 2020 Melon de Bourgogne Pét-Nat evokes a more "frizzante" style, which is perfect for sipping on a hot, sunny summer day.
