NV Clairette de Die Brut

Achard-Vincent
Discount Eligible $25.00
SOLD OUT

A narrow route nationale follows the meandering Drôme River east from where it flows into the Rhône, flanked on either side by hills and eventually small mountains—a precursor to the mighty Alpine peaks found not too far away. The local specialty here is Clairette de Die, a somewhat sweet Muscat crafted via the méthode Dioise ancestrale, which supposedly outdates the production of all other sparkling wines. This brut bottling, however, is a dry wine made exclusively from Clairette, crafted by the méthode traditionnelle that is also used in Champagne. With refreshing citrus and a hint of honeysuckle on the nose followed by a delicious-with-anything palate, this minerally sparkler ensures palate stimulation with every sip.

Inspiring Thirst

A good doctor prescribed the wine of Nuits-Saint-Georges to the Sun King, Louis XIV, when he suffered an unknown maladie. When the king’s health was restored the tasty remedy enjoyed a vogue at court. Lord, send me a doctor like that!
