Nee BulleuseProduced by Domaine Bernard ValletteLachassagne - France
Biodynamic producer Bernard Vallette has been making wine his whole life, and in fact the vineyards he works have been in his family for over 150 years. ‘Nee Bullese’ translates to ‘Born Bubbling’ but in a bit of French word play suggests the homphone nébuleuse, which suggests both terrestrial rain clouds and the interstellar clouds that give birth to stars. Far out indeed. 100% Sparkling Gamay, it is bright, tart, and clean, redolent of strawberries and with a nice mineral backbone.
