A very original sparkling aperitif.
Fresh - Floral
Right at the very tip of Belgium, where the Flemish and the French rub shoulders and the slopes dream of being mountains, lies the spot where Martin Bacquaert has his roots and produces elegant, thoroughbred wines. His domain is called Entre-Deux-Monts – between two mountains – logically enough, since it nestles between Mont Rouge and Mont Noir, both firmly anchored on the French-Belgian border. Entre-Deux-Monts covers eighteen hectares planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Pinot Auxerrois, Kerner (Riesling family) and Siegerrebe (Gewürztraminer family). In 2018, Martin Bacquaert planted new Acolon vines, which until then had been the sole prerogative of the Château Bon Baron in Wallonia.
Prepared using the traditional method, the Zientje is a sparkling wine based on apples, grapes and elderflowers. It was matured on slats for nine months. The name of this cuvée evokes that of a miserable wretch who once lived in the woods, near the estate’s vines and apple trees.
Pale robe and fine bubbles.
Nose dominated by fruit with floral touches.
A taste of apples, not too strong (in short: this is not cider!), without too much sugar on the taste buds.
As an aperitif or with dessert.
