The name "Girl Trap" is not a joke. I am so in love with this wine. It makes me want to throw myself at it, and beg it to date me. Or at the very least, feel me up a couple times. With crunchy, tart cranberry, raspberry, pomegranate and a chiffon fizz, it is a heavenly flirtation in a glass. Les Capriades is redefining "pink panty dropper".

Delicious, clean, impeccably-executed pet-nat. Has none of the technical issues or faulty edge that can plague many other examples of the style. Ripe and slightly sweet yet still so bright, tangy and refreshing due to the strong acidity balancing the RS. Absolutely lived up to their hype as one of the highest-level producers of méthode ancestrale sparkling wines in France. - Color: bright, medium (-) straw-gold hue - Nose: ripe, drying apricot, ripe bruised green apple, alfalfa honey, hay, wet river stone, chamomile, wild yeastiness - Palate: bruised green apple, bruised apricot, wet stone minerality, chamomile, hay, alfalfa honey - Acid: high - RS: off-dry, I’m guessing probably 20something grams/liter - Alcohol: medium (-) - Body: light/medium (-); moderate intensity of fine, soft bubbles.

Simple and delicious. Natural wine geek/NY Somm version of mid-range Prosecco - just a bit too nice to make a mimosa out of, but on a hot day you could chug it like a spritzer. No funk. Crunchy red fruit.
