Thierry Puzelat and Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme are legendary wine makers in the Loire and as I've tasted more of their wines they've become a couple of my favorites. This is made from bought grapes, but bought grapes that they control the farming of, so organic and fermented with just as much care and passion and manual effort as on Thierry's own family vineyards. This sparkling wine (Petillant Naturel) is 100% Cabernet Franc, naturally fermented, disgorged to remove some of the dead yeast, and then bottled without adding any sugar rich dosage to boost the wine's effervescence. Aroma: Puzelat Bonhomme's Petillant Rose smells like gorgeous rich red flowers, kind of like the strong smell of azalea bushes. The aroma isn't monotone and st the same time there's also a delicate and fresh raspberry aroma to the Puzelat-Bonhomme. It's a very pretty and beguiling aroma that also has a hint of rising bread dough that gives it a grounded earthy quality.
