Thierry Hesnault 54/55 Seibel Pét-Nat is a wonderful rosé pétillant from a direct press of old vines of the hybrid variety Plantet and a touch of Chenin Blanc. Plantet lends the most beautiful color and the chenin blanc adds lends lift and acidity, producing a delicate, nuanced take on the genre that pairs red berries, iron-rich minerality, and a refreshing bitterness to a beautiful effect.

About Thierry Hesnault 54/55 Seibel Pét-Nat

Thierry Hesnault 54/55 Seibel Pét-Nat is a wonderful rosé pétillant from a direct press of old vines of the hybrid variety Plantet and a touch of Chenin Blanc planted over clay and iron, aged for eight months on lees before disgorgement. Plantet lends the most beautiful color and the chenin blanc adds lends lift and acidity, producing a delicate, nuanced take on the genre that pairs red berries, iron-rich minerality, and a refreshing bitterness to a beautiful effect.

About Thierry Hesnault

A native of Touraine, Thierry Hesnault comes from a family of vignerons and traveled the world working in vineyards before returning to the Loire and working alongside the likes of Eric Nicolas and Jean-Pierre Robinot, whilst teaching at the Lycée Viticole in Amboise. He spent several years acquiring tiny parcels of the oldest vines he could find and in 2009 began making his own wine.

He now farms two and a half hectares of old vines of Chenin, Aunis, and hybrids spread out in tiny parcels across the Sarthe, planted over a complex melange of clay, iron, and silex. In addition to these, Thierry also keeps a couple of old parcels of gamay planted over deep sand near his home in Touraine. Having grown up amongst the vines, he farms with a real respect for nature, with treatments kept to an absolute minimum and a focus on channeling the energy of these remarkable old plants.

In the cave, Thierry makes wine as they did in yesteryear, without electricity or running water, relying on a deft hand, great patience, and the perfect conditions for élevage the tuffeau provides to produce achingly pure wines with a real capacity to age.
