Additional Information

The grapes come from the sub region of Vallet in the Muscadet appellation. The vineyard is planted on gabbro metamorphic rock, which is slow cooled magma that is rich in magnesium and iron. This 100% Melon de Bourgogne is sourced from the vineyards of Romain Petitou. The vineyard is in its third year of biodynamic conversion.

The grapes were picked the first week of September and undergo direct press before immediately being placed in glass globes that are buried underground. Both the natural fermentation and the elevage takes place in these tanks. The grapes are sourced from the domaine of Romain Petitiou and the elevage and bottling also took place at his domaine, under the careful eye and tutelage of Patrick Bouju and Justine Loiseau. The wine stayed on the lees until it was ready to be bottled in March 2021.

There was no fining, filtering, or SO2 added during any phase of winemaking. ABV is 12.3%.
Vivanterre is a natural wine produced in the Auvergne region of France by Patrick Bouju and Justine Loiseau, and founded by Rosie and Max Assoulin, with the support of renowned sommelier Cedric Nicaise. Using organically and biodynamically farmed grapes, vinified using natural processes, and untouched by any fining, filtering, or added sulfites, Vivanterre reflects the “Living Earth” from which it comes. Introduced by mutual friends, the Vivanterre team came together with the intention to create a delicious natural wine using sustainable practices. The collaborative spans the creative worlds, with a mix of wine experts and novices, who came together to create a wine that is truly a product of shared perspectives. We hope you enjoy Vivanterre as much as we do.
