Variety: Melon de Bourgogne
Julien Braud is an exciting young winemaker, one of the few next generation
winemakers in Sevre et Maine, who has taken over part of his family's estate with the mission of pushing the limits of Muscadet and its identity grape, Melon de Bourgogne. The area in general has seen a decline in producers and vineyards in recent years, but Julien Braud is on a mission to bring emphasis and notoriety back to this area, and so far is undeterred! Not only is he farming sustainably and recently certified organic, he brings a quality-minded approach and a sense of whimsy to an otherwise neglected area. His wines effectively over-deliver in quality at their modest price points.
Using all Melon de Bourgogne, or Melon, he has made this fresh, and fun sparkling (also known as Pet-Nat or Methode Ancestrale) that's low in alcohol with a hint of sweetness to be enjoyed at all times.
