Boeckel Bacchus Petillant Naturel 2021
Petillant natural is French for naturally lightly sparkling wine made in the bottle, similar to champagne, only typically cloudy due to slightly different winemaking methods. This lively fresh new comer is a dry, light bodied blend of three grapes, all from Alsace producer Emile Boeckel. Those grapes are Auxerrois, Sylvaner and Savagnin rose. Average vine age is 50 years and the wine is a lovely alternative to light sparkling wines to drink year round.
