BAU BLANC
“C’est Bau la fête”.
In Provence, we appreciate its fresh, fruity taste. It is a very refreshing, naturally sparkling muscat wine.
Different from common sparkling wine and champagne, Bau is produced from white muscat “petits grains” grape musts, transformed to bubble wine using a unique and natural fermentation process that turns the sugar to alcohol and bubbles.

BAU ROSE
This bottle contains all the finesse and elegance of the fruity scents of Muscat de Hambourg.
Different from common sparkling wine and champagne, Bau Rosé is produced from muscat de Hambourg grape musts, transformed to bubble wine using a unique and natural fermentation process that turns
the sugar to alcohol and bubbles.

 

PRESENTATION

According to Provençal tradition, it was "King René" who introduced the Muscat grape into our vineyards (which is why you'll find a statue of the king, grapes in hand, looking down over the Cours Mirabeau in Aix-en-Provence.).
Although there is no disputing that he loved this grape, the truth is that it had already been in the region at least a century beforehand.
In Forcalquier, it was grown in the early 17th century.

HISTORY

BAU BLANC

This sparkling wine is made from the must (grape juice) of the Muscat grape.
Fermentation takes place in a closed tank at a controlled temperature (18ºC to 20°C). It lasts on average one month.
When fermentation is stopped by chilling, there remains approximately 38g/l of sugar in the Bau.

The carbon dioxide is a natural product of the fermentation and retained in the product until it is bottled.

It is important to note that this is a low-alcohol wine with a pressure of around 2.5 bars, which undergoes only one fermentation. Its unique taste is very similar to the taste of a Muscat grape.

BAU ROSE

Bau Rosé is made from the must (grape juice) of the Black Hamburg variety cultured with carefully selected Saccharomyces Bayanus yeasts. Fermentation takes place in a closed tank at a controlled temperature (18ºC to 23°C): There are several methods for making sparkling wine. They all culminate in what is traditionally known as "secondary fermentation," the final stage of winemaking that gives the wine its effervescence. For Bau Rosé, the second fermentation does not take place in the bottle, but in a pressurized tank.
Fermentation is stopped by chilling once it reaches a strength of 9.5%/volume and there remains approx 38 g/l of sugar in the Bau Rosé. The carbon dioxide present is a natural product of the fermentation and retained in the product until it is bottled.
The final pressure of the wine is around 4.5 bars.

BAU BLANC

How do you drink it?

Ideally served as an accompaniment
to desserts and cakes, Bau sparkles for special occasions, it shows us how to entertain with elegance and good taste: on light desserts (tarts, fruit mousses, crêpes, galettes des rois, etc.).
As an aperitif, it can be served neat or mixed with Amandine for an original and delicate aperitif: Lou Parpaillou.

Organoleptic profile

Appearance: Bau has a light, rather golden yellow color with fine, light bubbles.
Bouquet: A definite Muscat aroma with floral notes of rose and jasmine, enhanced by a tiny touch of citrus and exotic fruits.
Palate: Bau can best be described as a very light, easy to drink wine with good length on the palate from the Muscat grape. The characteristic highly aromatic, rather fruity flavor of the Muscat grape unveils very unusual jasmine floral notes. To round off this unique aromatic bouquet, there is honey and an occasional hint of bergamot.

Storage:

Once opened, drink immediately or can be kept for a few hours with a special sparkling wine stopper.
