Petrone was a colt of Wild Miss which my grandfather, Henri Champliau, sold to the American actor Eddie CONSTANTINE. It was one of the best horses of its generation in 1968 in France and the USA.

The method is known as ‘Charmat'. We use a horizontal tank, which maximizes the surface contact between the wine and the lees. This tank is equipped with a rotating device that gently raises up the lees into the wine to extract all the aromatic potential. Thanks to this tool, we avoid the astringency, vegetable taste and 'green' acidity of the majority of sparkling wines. This achieves richer, rounder and fruity aromas.

The other mark of quality is the respect for time! The process for creating the bubbles takes a minimum of 3 months for the cuvée to be perfectly balanced with delicate, well-incorporated and even bubbles prior to bottling.

Tasting Note: Copious bubbles, pear and apple aromas, soft and generous on the palate finishing with a beautiful freshness with citrus notes. This wine is very easy to drink, can be enjoyed on any occasion and can also be used for mixing cocktails.
