What is Petillant Naturel?
According to certain sommeliers and natural wine trendsetters, champagne-style sparklers are out, and rustic, hazy pétillant natural wines are in. These mildly sweet, moderately bubbly wines are inexpensive, and their low alcohol content makes them ideal for everyday consumption. Pet Nat sparkling wines are naturally lower in alcohol and sugar than other sparkling wines since they include no added ingredients.
Petillant Naturel is far from being the new hipster kid on the block, despite its recent increase in popularity.
