Grape Varietal(s): Chenin Blanc
How It Drinks: Stimulating, Fizzy, and Textural
Winemaking Style: Progressive

The “Ephémère” cuvée is a natural sparkling wine from Chenin, made with grapes from the estate. It is vinified without any inputs or added sulphites. It is not disgorged but very lightly filtered.

The nose is open, jovial, on ripe pear and citrus fruits. The mouth is round and delicious. The bubbles are fine and the mineral freshness balances everything. Pleasure guaranteed!

Loire Valley vigneron Benoît Courault is something of a legend in French wine circles. Having cut his vinous teeth is Chambolle-Musigny (Burgundy) and then in Tavel with Eric Pfifferling of L'anglore, he returned to the Loire to take over 6.5 hectares in Anjou. His vineyard is organic, tended to entirely by hand and horse, and his non-interventionist philosophy extends into the winery. All of his wines we have tasted to date have been a total joy to drink.
