Celebrate Summer with Joyous Rosé Pét-Nat
From one of the most picturesque villages in all of France, in the heart of the Luberon, nestled between the southern Rhône and Provence, we found an equally beautiful rosé pét-nat of Mourvèdre.
Wine has been made at Château Fontvert since the 16th century. But, in the past few years, organic and biodynamic farming has become the norm.
Though this part of France is known for intense sun and warm days, the Monod family has thoughtfully planted much of their vineyard space in the shadows of the nearby Luberon mountains; the shade provided, coupled with the area’s sand and limestone soils make for wines with natural freshness and bright acidity.
The wine is berry-hued in the glass, with notes of just-picked strawberry, a delicate herbaceousness and a crisp, minerally finish.
It’s a wonderful iteration of a pét-nat, a trendy sparkling wine we can’t get enough of.
Why are we so infatuated with pet-nats? It's simple: they're more compelling than Prosecco or Cava, more joyful than crémant and (much) more affordable than Champagne.
It’s such a pleasure to drink bubbles like this any day of the week.
There’s an idea that sparkling wines are just for celebrations or for toasts. What a silly, outdated concept, when great bubbles make a great accompaniment to so many foods. Whether you’re looking for a match for a charcuterie plate, fried chicken or even a burger, a fruity, crisp and clean rosé pét-nat like this one is your best bet.
