Le Rocher des Violettes Pétillant Originel
Le Rocher des Violettes
From the importer:
The natural sparkling is made from old vines of Chenin Montlouis sur Loire appellation. An aperitif, the Pétillant Originel offers fine bubbles, a very pleasant nose with notes of white fruits.
Originel is made without any additions or modern interventions of any kind, a requirement enshrined by its makers and, as of 2007, by law—for Pétillant Originel is now a legal class of wine in France (pétillant naturel and méthode ancestrale are not codified). Currently they are one of only five producers in Montlouis making Originel.
