Other Notes
Pétillant Naturel, which is simply French for “naturally sparkling”, refers to wines produced in the méthode ancestrale, an ancient and natural way of making simpler, more rustic, sparkling wines, that predates the méthode traditionelle, which we use for our Silver Lining Crémant. Unlike the méthode traditionelle wines, where a fully fermented base wine is bottled with yeast and sugar added to promote a second fermentation in the bottle, a pétillant naturel wine is bottled and sealed with a strong crown seal before the end of its first fermentation. As it finishes fermentation in the bottle, carbon dioxide is produced which makes the wine fizzy.
