Pet Nat & Bubbles

Petillant Naturel is an artisan sparkling wine made according to an old method - also called the Ancestral method. Compared to traditional sparkling wine production, the mash ferments directly in the bottle, creating the natural and refreshing carbonic acid. Pet Nat is therefore a spontaneously fermented sparkling wine. You'll also find traditional sparkling wines here

What is Pet Nat actually?

Whether fashionable or not, there's no getting around it anymore - Pet Nat is now a term on everyone's lips and it's impossible to imagine the natural wine movement without it - but what exactly is Pet Nat? We are talking about Petillant Naturel, which in French means something like "naturally bubbly", an artisan sparkling wine made according to the old method - also called method Ancestral, because that's how sparkling wines were made before monks in Champagne perfected the second fermentation in the bottle.


The bubbly sensation - how does Pet Nat taste like?

With natural wine fans, Pet Nat is extremely well received due to the natural way it is made. The spontaneously fermented sparkling wines usually taste mostly earthy with yeast and brioche notes, but don't worry, fruit flavors are by no means missed out.

Pet Nat is often fruitier than Champagne and other sparkling wines and can contain notes of citrus, green apples and wildflowers. Due to natural fermentation and different grape varieties, the flavor profile of Pet Nat can vary from bottle to bottle. However, there are also some common characteristics that all Pet Nats share: They are lively, fresh and have a pleasant acidity. Pet Nats also bring plenty of juiciness that is extremely animating to drink, leading from one glass to the next.


How is Pet Nat made?

Pet Nat is produced according to a similar principle as Champagne, but there are some important differences. In the production of Pet Nat, the must is bottled before the end of fermentation, and the natural fermentation process continues in the bottle. This creates carbonic acid, which makes the wine sparkling. Unlike the Champagne method, no additional sugar or yeast is added to Pet Nat. This means that the carbonic acid and the aromas come exclusively from the grapes used in its production.
