The grapes are direct pressed then the juice partially ferments in stainless steel. It is then bottled with a crown cap. The fermentation continues inside of the bottle and the trapped CO2 creates the wine's natural effervescence. Each bottle is manually disgorged then resealed with a Champagne cork.
Agnès and René Mosse, along with their sons Joseph and Sylvestre, live and work in the village of St-Lambert-du-Lattay, a village in the Coteaux-du-Layon area of Anjou. Layon is a small tributary to the Loire that lazily digs its way through well exposed and drained hills of schist and sandstone. Its micro-climate allows for a long hang-time, and when the mornings are foggy in the fall, with no rain, botrytis develops easily on the Chenin grapes.
