Unique coupage in the world: Xarel·lo, Macabeu and Sumoll.
Ancestral Method – Sparkling Rosé Wine produced by spontaneous fermentation.
Ancestral method is likely that this was the first method developed for making effervescent/sparkling wine.
- Making the base wine
- Transforming the base wine (still wine with residual sugar) into an effervescent/sparkling wine.
The secondary fermentation (“prise de mousse”) occurs in bottles without addition of sugar (no tirage liqueur or expedition liqueur). The “prise de mousse” is stopped simply by yeast cell depletion.
