A new Vigneronne is born!
As you know, here at Cantillon we take the utmost care to produce our beer as naturally as possible. Because the Muscat grapes used for the Vigneronne were not organic, we decided to move to an organic producer and to use wine grapes instead of table grapes. After some research, we couldn't find organic Muscat, but we did find organic Viognier grapes.
We love Viognier wine; aromatic and delicate, with nice fruity notes. We're sure that all these qualities will pair well with Lambic.The grapes come from Minervois area in the South of France, cultivated in a more natural way on a clay-limestone soil.
Even though we decided to move from Muscat grapes to Viognier, the name will remain the same. We did decide to change the label to avoid any confusion between past releases with Muscat grapes. The new one features a fantastic design by our wonderful graphist and friend, Ammo.
See you in Spring 2020 for the result.
Santeï!

Delicious grape character with mellow suiting acidity. Always a treat to try this decently fresh. Great match with the crepes too.

Bottle, bottled 10 october 2019. First batch of new version. Color: Clear golden, thin dense white head. Aroma: Sweet and sour, grapes, wood, some hay and wild yeast funk. Taste: Moderate to medium sour, light to moderate sweet and very light bitterness. White grapes, some grapeskin, wood notes, funky wild yeast and hay, hints of green apple and citrus. Medium body, below average carbonation. Long lasting fruity and lightly Bretty finish. Vinuous and bit dry-ish mouthfeel. Tannins mostly at the finish. Nice complexity, fruity and well balanced flavours. Hard to tell the differences with the previous version when not tasted side by side. Good one. Maybe a bit young, I will keep one in the cellar to see how this beer will age.
