About:  Outstanding sparkling from Julien Altaber of Sextant. Beautifully structured bubbles and notes of creamy brioche. Gamay is direct pressed with the juice spending no time on the skins so as to avoid any tannin and almost no colour, it is still represented in the wine with subtle red berry flavours. Finishes with crunchy acidity and a delightfully silky texture.

Julien Altaber grew up on a dairy farm and driving tractors in the fields of Burgundy. At the age of 16 years old he fell in love with making wine and started a range of internships in France with winemakers like Dominique Derain. It's here that he learnt about biodynamic vineyard management and has adopted a no chemical approach to his own land. In the cellar he uses a less is more approach to create his wines through native yeast, spontaneous fermentation and no added S02.

Grapes are hand harvested and go through a spontaneous fermentation. The wine is then bottled before the ferment has completed to produce a Pet Nat style of sparkling.
