Additional Information: Chateau le Roc is one of the leading producers in the Cotes du Frontonnais, situated on the left bank of the river Tarn about twenty miles north of Toulouse, in Southwest France. The estate has been run by brothers Jean-Luc and Frederic Ribes since 1988. The area is generally flat, with occasional hills that create small slopes. The vineyard’s subsoil is composed of ice age deposits, topped by alluvial soil and rouget, a material very rich in iron that lends a particular flavour to the wines. The typical climate of the region is similar to that of Bordeaux.  It is warm and dry in the summer, and mild and wet in the winter.

The region is noted for the Negrette grape usually blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah. Here the Negrette is blended with a little Mauzac to produce a delicate, petillant pink sparkler. Farmed biodynamically, limited production and allocation.

The bottle is closed with a crown cap during the first fermentation resulting in CO2 dissolving in the wine until it is popped. It's hazy as the dead yeast cells are left inside the bottle which adds lots of texture and savoury notes to the wine. Zero Sulpher.
