Landron-Chartier, Natürlich Pet Nat Rose 2019
A juicy, easygoing, pale-pink Pet Nat. 100% Gamay which you already know means it's a certified Juice Bomb. No added sulfur and Bernard's signature fizz, great value, and one that's pretty hard to come by.
Third-generation winemaker Bernard had been working with his brother Jo in the heart of Muscadet Sèvre and Maine area, before moving in 2002 to the lesser-known and therefore cheaper area of Ancenis, (to the North-East of Nantes). But when his Benedict returned in 2008 after his degree in viticulture and oenology, they started to bottle their own wine - organic conversion. They now farm around 25 hectares and moved to a new cellar in the town of Oudon for the 2017 harvest. They have a mix of varieties planted, including Burgundy Melon, Mad White, Pinot Gris, Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2013 Benoît started making sparkling wines, producing a lively and bright Pet-Nats.
