BUBBLES, WITH JOY: PÉTILLANT NATUREL’S TRIUMPHANT RETURN



Bubbles, With Joy: Pétillant Naturel’s Triumphant Return - The New York Times

"Don’t call pétillant naturel the new bubbly in town. Don’t call it “the new rosé,” as Eater.com did in 2016 in an effort to encapsulate its trendiness. In fact, don’t call it the new anything.

This genre of sparkling wine, now known as pétillant natural, or pét-nat, is made by a method so old that the French term for it is “methode ancestrale.” It’s most likely how the original sparkling wine was made, however many centuries ago that was, although that was almost certainly an accidental creation."
