Piquette is the quintessential ‘something from nothing’ creation. Made by adding water to the grape marc left over after pressing to permit a second fermentation, the result is a naturally simple, lower-alcohol (~5%) wine that competes admirably in the sour beer category. Light-hearted, unfussy, refreshing and frugal… all attributes one is wise to embrace in lean, complicated times.
Atomic Bomb #2 made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is crisp, puckering, aromatic and summery.
Serve cold like a sparkling wine. It's in the name.
