Wine to be consumed young, to conserve the full fruity and floral flavors. To be stored flat in a cool room away from light.

Vinification
Ancestral method is used. After harvest, the grapes are rapidly pressed and placed in low-temperature vats (similar to how the ancient Vonconces kept jars in the icy waters of their local rivers). The partially fermented must is bottled to ferment further. Disgorging at least six months after bottling, once the alcohol content has reached 7 to 9%.
Pairings

This is an ideal wine for all desserts and ice creams, and is very interesting with foie gras. It is especially suitable for daytime meetings and cocktail parties. A great breakfast wine!

bti"White gold color. Bright, fruity, floral aromas and flavors of lychee and peony with a supple, tangy, finely carbonated, off-dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, compelling, medium-long clementine, Meyer lemons, and honeyed apples finish with fine, crunchy, fruit tannins and no oak. A zesty and delicious off-dry sparkler."

iwinereview"Pale platinum color. Bright, fresh leesy apple and pear aromas. Medium sweet on a bright palate with light apple cider and citrus flavors, finishing clean. A 75/25 blend of Muscat Petits Grains and Clairette made the ancestral method where the wine is fermented in bottle and disgorged with some residual sugar and low alcohol. The town of Die is located in the eastern Rhone Valley."
