In 2017, much of the Auvergne was damaged by frost. As such, for this cuvee Manu decided to make an assemblage of saignee of each parcel of gamay d'auvergne rather than a sparkling wine from an individual vineyard as is usually the case.  This means that a truly complex mix of soils have influenced this cuvee. 

So, a small portion of each red ferment was drawn off and blended and then bottled with roughly 18grams of sugar. The wine was disgorged after fermenting to dryness. 

The final wine is infectiously delicious petillant. The style of the fruit is crunchier and brighter than the normal forest-y richness of gamay d'auvergne and the colour is an extremely eye catching shade of ruby. On day three it's still tasting very good. Manu and Catherine want their wines to be direct, precise and pure which is exactly what this is
