**PSA MAKE SURE YOU SERVE THIS WINE SUPER CHILLED AND OPEN SLOWLY**
Jean-Louis Pinto, AKA Es d’Aqui, learned his trade whilst working with his long time friend in the La Sorga cellar (one of our personal favourites too!).
He works out of a small cellar under his family home. Jean-Louis, as well as his pals, are committed to only working with fruit from organic and biodynamic vineyards with work in the cellar being equally minimal. No sulphur is added to any of the wines and a good year, the total output is around 10,000 bottles.
No two years are the same from the Es d’Aqui cellar, but Jean-Louis palate is equisite and his values of quality fruit and minimal intervention shine though, resulting in wines that are joyful and sunny and a pleasure to enjoy.
So Conciliabulle sits in the space between a red and deep rose coloured pet-nat as it's made from a blend of red (Grenache) and white (Colombard) grapes. The results are a fresh and ripe yet medium to full bodied sparkler, packed with strawberries and a little citrus acidity on top. This is one of those pet nats that can be a little over active, so don't let the cap fool you to open it like a bottle of beer! Instead, make sure it's super chilled, open slowly and enjoy!
