We don't get to see much organic French sparkling wine (aside from Champagne) here in Australia, which makes this Duc D'Henry a wonderful and welcome outlier.
Why is this bubbly so delicious and yet inexpensive? Well it comes down to the young vineyard, which is still finding its feet. But it also means you get a bargain - a crisp, gently fruity French sparkling wine that combines just enough generosity with real flavour depth.

What a steal!

How's it taste?

Very floral and fruity, this light-bodied sparkling wine offers notes of peach and apricot aromas on the nose. It shows lovely harmony, swathing the palate in crispy texture and a delicate mandarin orange, while well-meshed acidity keeps this fresh. A clean bubbly for easy sipping.

How was it made?

Vineyard: Young plantation, in organic culture. Located in high altitude, vines are prematurely harvested then, grapes keep the freshness and the characteristics adapted to sparkling wines. Geology: Clay-limestone soil. Vinification: After the pressing, grapes musts are cleaned out and prepared under cold conditions during 24 hours. The fermentation takes place in low-temperature conditions. For a more intense freshness, the malolactic fermentation is not realised. Wines are then taken away and raised on fine dregs, before being stuck and filtered to prepare them for the second fermentation. Second fermentation and ageing: We stabilise wines be cold process to avoid any tartaric haste. The second fermentation is generated by the addition of yeasts and sugar. It takes place at 18C in stainless steel vats in order to ensure optimum homogenisation. During the second fermentation, our vats are provided with an agitator so that yeasts and sugars are in suspension. Just before the bottling, the wine is filtered under isobarometric pressure with microns filters.
