A Pétillant Naturel is made by the méthode ancestrale, predating the méthod champenoise or traditionelle. A wine produced by the méthode ancestrale means that it was bottled prior to fully completing its fermentation with the natural sugars and wild yeast present in the grape must creating a lightly sparkling wine or “pétillant naturel” in bottle. Unlike a sparkling wine made by the méthode champenoise, the resulting lees of a pétillant – naturel remain undisgorged and unfiltered and, therefore, the wine is perceptibly cloudy.
Why a 250-ML can?
We sought to craft a “first of its kind” — a premium naturally-lightly sparkling wine in a lightweight and sustainable single-serving format for more laid-back, individual enjoyment.
