Celebrate life’s memorable moments with this classy, complex sparkling. A blend of 56% Chenin Blanc & 34% Pinot Noir, it features sublime notes of lemon, mandarin and chestnut, with rich layers of complexity from the bottle ferment. With over 2 years on yeast less, we have done all the cellaring this wine will ever need. Pair this with fresh seafood, rich poultry dishes or light game.
“60% pinot and 40% chardonnay made in the traditional method. Following a second fermentation in bottle, the wine was given further complexity with 2 years of lees ageing and the addition of older wines at disgorgement, aged in older oak. Good gear. More of an apero style than a rich, creamy one. This said, the lees detail imbues complexity to notes of baked apple, nashi pear and oyster shell. The dosage appears minimal, promoting a saline freshness and a refreshing plume of a finish.”
