Julien Altaber grew up on a dairy farm and driving tractors in the fields of Burgundy. At the age of 16 years old he fell in love with making wine and started a range of internships in France with winemakers like Dominique Derain. It's here that he learnt about biodynamic vineyard management and has adopted a no chemical approach to his own land. In the cellar he uses a less is more approach to create his wines through native yeast, spontaneous fermentation and no added S02.
Viticulture & Winemaking Biodynamic practises. Grapes are hand harvested and go through a spontaneous fermentation. The wine is then bottled before the ferment has completed to produce a Pet Nat style of sparkling.
Grapes Gamay, Aligoté
Region Burgundy, France
Tasting Notes Great structured bubbles, creamy and brioche forward Pet Nat. Light pink in the glass with subtle red berry notes from the Gamay. Finishes with crunchy acidity and a silky texture.
