TASTING NOTES

DESCRIPTION

Lively cordon of lather dances atop the wine with fine bubbles that rise steadily to the surface. The wine develops aromas of fresh apple & citrus, along with a refined dough aroma in the background. A pleasant tickling effervescence gently stimulates your senses. This wine possesses a round and soft finish, with delicate complexity & finesse.


COLOR
White


SERVING SUGGESTIONS

As an aperitif with canapés, shellfish, light chicken or veal dishes, dessert of poached pears. This wine shows a great potential for aging.

WINE SPECIFICATIONS

The grapes were meticulously sorted straight off the vine, then inspected to ensure that only the healthiest & ripest grapes were chosen for this wine. Whole cluster pressing was done, respecting the gentle champenoise cycles. Pressing yield was cuvée 120 gallons/ ton, taille 15 gallons/ ton. Alcoholic fermentation occurred during 5-6 weeks with the wine staying in contact with the yeast for 24-26 weeks gaining volume, roundness and a softer texture. Riddling of the sediment lasted 6-7 days, the bottles stayed “sur pointe” (neck down) for 1-3 months prior to disgorging. A “dosage liquor” (sweetened wine at 66%) was added to the wine at disgorging to polish the style of this consistently aromatic and stylistic cuvee. There was no Malolactique fermentation.
