Clairette de Die Tradition is a sweet and fruity sparkling wine, made up of 90% white muscat with small grains grape variety and 10% white clairette grape variety. It is vinified according to the ancestral dioise method.
Bright and golden, this wine owes all its originality to the subtle aromas of muscat and its fine pearly bubbles.
These grapes, which exhale intense and fragrant aromas, are harvested from old vines over 40 years old.
Ideal for celebrating an event, this wine goes well with all desserts. It is also appreciated as an aperitif and can be served with foie gras.
This low alcohol wine (7 to 8°) is to taste young (before two years) to preserve its fruity aromas and to serve very fresh (5 to 8 °C).
Harvesting is done manually. The grapes are gently pressed. The juice is filtered and kept at low temperature in vats. A slow fermentation process begins to avoid losing the precious sugar in the grapes. In early January, before the grape must is completely transformed into wine, it is bottled. The fermentation will continue in bottle for at least 4 months, releasing fine bubbles, wich is called foaming. Thus is obtained a slightly sparkling wine, naturally sweet, because the sugar of muscat is not totally transformed into alcohol. It contains only the sugar of the fruit (no sugar and yeast added).
