Marc Delienne Le Petit Nat
Marc Delienne Le Petit Nat is a light, refreshing and very approachable wine. Pale pink in the glass. Lots of delicate fruity aromas ranging from pink apples and bosc pear to citrus hints and subtle cinnamon spice. The lightweight palate has a high acidity that makes the wine extremely refreshing. Flavours of delicate pink flowers, dried apricot, blood orange and grapefruit mingle with spicy hints.
100% Gamay. The fruit comes from 40–80-year-old vines by Fleurie-based producer Marc Delienne.
Manual harvest in small crates, sorting in the cellar. Next is a pressing before vinification with natural yeasts in concrete.
