Domaine des Pothiers Eclipse Methode Ancestrale 2019
A hedonistic, lively sparkling. Remember the excitement once felt from pulling a raspberry drop out of a $1 mix lollie bag.... consider this the grown up version. It’s an explosion of fleshy red fruit made in the Ancestral method from the local grape variety Gamay Saint-Romain.
The Côte Roannaise is a tiny region in the south western corner of the Loire Valley in France. Romain Paire has taken over his family estate there, Domaine des Pothiers, and has gained a serious following of Somms and wine geeks from around the world. The vineyards are entirely certified organic and biodynamic.
