|Pink and sparkling Gamay. Light, fruity and delicious! Only a minimal amount of S02 is used at bottling to keep the wine fresh and “headache-free”. Fermentation naturally produces a lot of CO2, which acts as protection against oxidation during aging. Filtration is also minimal so that the wine keeps its original fruit and aromas. Robert Parker has rated Brun as a four-star producer (the only other Beaujolais producers with four stars are in the Crus) and has written about his wines:“Proprietor Brun is a believer in using only the vineyard’s wild yeast, rather than the synthetic yeasts used by most other producers. His beautiful wines are favorites among purists.”
Many people find the name rather confusing... what the heck does FRV100 mean? Actually, it is a brilliant play on words using phonetic pronunciations understandable to the average consumer.
Here's how it works. The phonetic pronunciation of FRV 100 in English is EFF ARE VEE ONE HUNDRED.
In French, it is EFF ERR VAY SON – in other words EFFERVESCENT!
That's right....this is sparkling Gamay made by méthode ancestrale!
