Mikaël Bouges Clic Clac 2020 11% - Sparkling White
Clic Clac is Mikaël’s pristine pet’nat of Menu Pineau, from vines over 60-years old planted over gravelly limestone. Everything here is done by hand; the wine is transferred from tank to bottle during the primary fermentation and then racked upside down on traditional wooden slats in contact with the lees for six months. This period of contact is what gives the wine its creamy, savoury depth. The wine is then disgorged - meaning that all this sediment is removed, by hand - leaving a clear, clean sparkling wine with plenty of green apple and lemon citrus, as well as a softness to the structure you might associate with this grape; Chenin Blanc’s little sister. Because of the co2 present in the wine, this is the one cuvée that Mikaël is able to make with no additional sulphites.
