6.9%, this is a Piquette, so basically a second pressing of the grape detritus fermented naturally and lightly. This is purple with a ruby foam on a moderately effervescent frame. Has a lactic sour note to it reminiscent of a lambic. The nose is relatively fruity but the palate is dry as a bone with only subtle sourness and a very dull tannic bite.
If you imagine a blend of a blackberry lambic and a bone-dry Lambrusco, or else can imagine Bartles&Jaymes with no sugar and a splash of tannat, this is basically what you have.
Not unpleasant, chuggable at <7%, but for $20, there are maybe other things I’d rather drink.
