    Bubbles are creamy but definitely present. Beautiful notes of fresh cracked black pepper notes at the end of the palate, bright red berries. It's fun, it's good, it's clean, it's a really great pet'nat. Pair it with pretty much anything, if the bottle is

    Product information

    Eglantine in 2019 is delicious pet'nat' rosé, a cross between the enticing rose and spicy notes of a Bugey-Cerdon and the backbone of a serious Rosé de Loire. Benoit Courault changes slightly the style of this cuvée depending on the profile of the vintage: this year is frizzante, and almost dry. The grapes are grown mostly on a clay-rich plateau over decomposed schists, with a few plots directly on the blue slate itself. They are of course hand-harvested, pressed and start their fermentation with no sulfur until Benoit bottles the wine with enough sugar to get 2 or so bars of pressure. It ages a couple of months and is disgorged in the Spring with nothing added. Expect an explosion of rose and strawberry at opening, and quite a decent amount of clean, appealing fermentary aromas. The palate is more structured and in place, with a ripe rhubarb like acidity driving the game.70% Cabernet Franc, 30% Grolleau (a sprinkle of Pineau d'Aunis).
