Pink Bulles Pet Nat, Jean Maupertuis 2022
Jean Maupertuis tends 3.8 hectares of vines in the commune of Saint-Georges-sur-Allier and La Roche Noir. He works principally with a local strain of Gamay referred to as "Gamay D'Auvergne", but also owns a little bit of Pinot Noir and a tiny amount of Noirfleurien, an ancient local varietal found only in the neighbouring village of Mirefleurs. Most of his vines are aged between 40 and 100+ years. Jean doesn't use chemical fertilizers, insecticides or herbicides in the vineyard, preferring to work his soils and develop their indigenous microflora. Everything here is done by hand, and naturally. This includes the use of no chemical fertilizers or pesticides in the vineyard.
You can imagine quaffing these bulles whilst playing boules. This bubbly pale pink Gamay is relentlessly cheerful with delicious ripe strawberry flavours and mouth-cleansing acidity. Off-dry, it merits the cliché “summer in a glass”.
