About Caves Carod Clairette de Die "Tradition" White Sparkling N.V.:


Made from 75% Muscat Petits Grains and 25% Clairette. Clairette de Die is produced with the ancestral dioise method.
The grapes are rapidly pressed after the harvest and then placed in vats at low temperatures (replicating the process used by the Voconces in ancient times who kept the jars in the icy waters of their local rivers). The half-fermented must is bottled and fermentation continues in the bottle, giving a naturally sparkling wine. Disgorging occurs at least six months after bottling, while the wine still contains sugar and has reached an alcohol content of 7 to 9 %.

This is a sparkling wine with very fine bubbles, light in alcohol (8°), and containing residual sugar (incomplete fermentation). Clairette de Die has been known since ancient times (dates back to 77 A.D.). Clairette brings delicacy and lightness to the wine whereas Muscat gives its typical sweet flavor. The wine displays intense aromas, a refreshing balance of fruit and acidity with peach, orange and white flowers flavors.


About Joseph Drouhin Beaujolais Nouveau 2013

Beaujolais Nouveau: Particularly intense, deep colour, dark and purple red. We rarely achieve this intensity of colour for wines ‘en primeur’. The intensity of the bouquet is just as surprising, more towards dark red fruits with touches of blackberry and black cherry. The mouth is balanced, fairly rich, and with the same fruity notes.
