Variety

Chenin blanc

Cedric Garreau produces an elusively small quantity of pet-nat from his young vines of Grolleau and Chenin Blanc. Of course, like everything at Garo’vin, these are made with native yeast and nothing added. After 4-6 months of fermentation under crown cap to trap the carbon dioxide, the bottles are disgorged by hand. The combination of short ageing and young vines produces vigorous, fruit forward natural wines.
