Few bottles of this utterly singular brut make it past France’s
borders, but if we had it our way, the world should toast with a glass
every night. Vibrant and refreshing, this 100% Mauzac wine made bubbly
through an ancient process called the “Méthode Gaillacoise,” is
top-to-bottom enjoyment. A touch of sweetness makes way for a full
mouthful of effervescent lemon gelato, combined with toasty notes and a
hint of licorice. Very unique and a steal for the price.
Domaine Moulin sparkling wine
We discovered this enticing wine not so long ago at Domaine de Moulin—a
top-notch family estate that also makes still wines (don’t miss their
great rouge) but the crème de la crème is this brut, made according to
the “Gaillac method,” also called the “ancestral method.” Young wines
are bottled before all the residual sugar has been fermented into
alcohol; the fermentation then continues in the bottle, releasing carbon
dioxide. There is no dosage; the slight hint of sweetness in the bottle
is all natural.
