Domaine Le Fay d’Homme Vin Mousseux Brut X Bulles NV
Domaine Le Fay d’Homme Vin Mousseux Brut X Bulles is made according to a natural "ancestral method".
Golden yellow colour with a steady stream of fine bubbles in the glass. Clean raspberry aromas open the nose, with salinity and minerality soon following. Perfect balance of fruity and freshness as the aromas follow through to the dry palate.
90% Melon and 10% Côt. The fruit comes from a vineyard with an altitude of 50–100 metres and a bed of gneiss soils. Temperate oceanic climate with influence from the Atlantic Ocean, precipitation evenly spread throughout the year. Average age of vines are 40 years old. Short pruning in the vineyard, work of the soil and vines in accordance to the rules of organic and biodynamic agriculture.
This wine is made using a natural "ancestral method", where it is the grape sugar that ensures fermentation, secondary fermentation and residual sugars. After the harvest, grapes immediately go through pressing. After racking overnight, fermentation begins in temperature controlled tanks without the addition of exogenous yeasts. Light filtration during fermentation before bottling, which allows secondary fermentation in cellar. Disgorging when the wine reaches balance.
Cellaring potential: 3–5 years.
