The word 'physis has its origins in ancient Greek philosophy and refers to the natural world as well as the concept of growth of living things. Kim and Étienne honours the 200-year crémant legacy of Saumur and its signature tuffeau terroir in this wine. The porous nature of tuffeau allows the vine roots to penetrate deep into the earth, leading to the creation of wines that exhibit minerality, freshness, and a distinct finesse. Tuffeau is also known for maintaining temperature and humidity in an environment, both critical parameters in the fermentation process.
