Christophe Pueyo 2020 Petillant Naturel 'Galipette' (St. Emilion)

Though Christophe Pueyo is the 5th generation of winemakers to work with this estate,  he has brought them in a new direction with conversion to organic farming (and more recently biodynamic practices), and is making decidedly un-classic expressions of St. Emilion. The 'Galipette' is a far cry from the Bordeaux Blanc we're accustomed to, but is instead a delightful, no additive pet-nat of Semillon and Muscadelle. These two varieties, typically the minority in dry, white blends, are the star of this frothy sparkler. Notes of chamomile and white flowers, soft herbs, and fresh bread on the nose, and  a creaminess and richness that you might not expect from a no sulfur pet-nat on the palate. Michelle DeWyngaert
