Vin de France
Grolleau, Cabernet Franc
Cédric Garreau produces an elusively small quantity of pét-nat from his young vines of Grolleau and Chenin Blanc. Of course, like everything at Garo’vin, these are made with native yeasts 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 aging and young vines produces vigorous, fruit forward natural wines.
