Product Description

"Pascal Potaire – caviste at the dawn of his career – worked for others for much of his winemaking life: for Noëlla Morantin in the Touraine and for Nicolas Renard in Vouvray. He began his own label in the early 2000s, and was joined by his good friend and business partner Moses in 2011. Obsessed with balance, low alcohol, and high acidity, his mission became to bring the elegance and finesse of great Champagne to the world of naturally fermented sparkling wine. The process of making méthode ancestrale sparkling wine is both incredibly simple and incredibly difficult to execute well. First, there’s extensive sorting in the vines. Because the wines are made without sulfur, the grapes have to be perfect; flaws in the grapes will mean bigger flaws in the wine. The juice begins to ferment in tank, and at the opportune moment mid-fermentation, the wines are bottled to complete their fermentation under a crown cap, trapping carbonic gas and giving them their soft, frothy bubbles. It’s both an art and a science bottling at the right time to create wines of varying levels of sweetness, not to mention stability in a category noted for instability and bottle variation. Capriades’ “Piège à Filles” rosé is mostly Gamay, with small additions of Côt, Cab Franc, and Pineau D’Aunis. Generally the sweetest of the lineup, it’s a wine that also offers deep savory notes."
