Des Grottes S(C)IDERATION 2021
In 2020 Romain had a very tough vintage with his signature Brut De Cuve wine which was much riper than usual (13,5%) and struggled to finish fermentation. Something drastic had to be done to not lose all of his wine, Romain spoke to his friend Phillipe, a producer of local apple juice and he had a batch of juice that had started fermenting. Romain suggested they combine the non-fermenting grape juice and the fermented apple juice. The apple juice helped the wine to finish and now it clocks in at 11.5%. Romain bottled with a touch of sugar left to give a spritz on opening. A very fun, refreshing co-ferment that is as bright and easy to drink as most things Romain makes!
