2018 Bobinet Du Rififi a Beaulieu Pet Nat
There is no doubt that the natural wine movement has come of age in the Loire Valley, thanks in part to the work of Sébastien Bobinet and his partner, Eméline Calvez. Domaine Bobinet started in 2002, when Sebastien took over 1.8 hectares of vines and the cellar from his grandparents. A delicious Pet Nat from mostly Chenin Blanc with a touch of Chardonnay. The earlier-maturing Chardonnay is picked first, starts fermentation and is later joined by the Chenin. When the time comes (reaching the right sugar levels for fermentation), the must is sealed in bottle and left to naturally finish and finally disgorged. A dry, taut and aromatic Pet Nat, just the way we like them.
