Poliane Extra Brut
TRADITIONAL METHOD

Less known than the Bordeaux red wine production, the sparkling wines existed since the XIXe century. This production found a natural place in the underground galleries of the valleys of the Garonne and the Dordogne. There are same careers than in Champagne area which offers ideal conditions of the temperature for the “each of foam” (“prise de mousse”) and the ageing of the product. The manufacturing process of our wine is the same than for a Champagne , only the grapes varieties used change. After an exclusively hand picking harvest, the grape juice « the must » is fermented in tanks in a traditional way at the Chateau de La Grave. We obtain a wine says “basic wine”. The second stage is a new fermentation in the bottle to obtain the effervescent wine made in the caves in Bourg sur Gironde. At the end, we make the disgorging which consists in opening the bottle to take out the deposit made during the fermentation thanks to the pressure in the bottle.


Public price:
White Extra-brut 75 cl -  € 10.50 /bottle
Pink    Extra-brut 75 cl -  € 10.50/bottle
