Palate

Finesse and intensity define this lively wine which opens with enticing notes of pear, honeydew melon, peach, guava and apricot. Uplifting citrus flavors and fine bubbles are wrapped in crisp acidity, yet the round, creamy mouthfeel that comes from the wine’s years of lees contact persists through a lingering finish.

Winemaking

Produced using the labor-intensive process known as “methode champenoise” or the “traditional method,” this vineyard designated sparkling wine comprises the two varietals most commonly found in Champagne: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. After the primary fermentation was completed in neutral French oak barrels, the wine was placed in bottles along with a proprietary “tirage” to induce secondary fermentation. The wine rested “en tirage” for two years and was disgorged in August 2016
