2014 Brut Zero Dosage
Aromas of lemon, apple, and pear, with hits of honeysuckle, and a fresh yeastiness. On the palate, the wine is light-bodied and dry, with moderate acidity and a fine bead. Citrus continues on the palate, with notes of orange, apricot, peach, Asian Pear, a hint of pineapple, an austere minerality and limey notes in the finish.

The grapes were harvested by hand and whole cluster pressed. The juice settled overnight, then was racked to a stainless tank for cool fermentation. When fermentation was complete, the wine aged on the fine lees until bottling the following winter. The wine was bottled under cap, and aged in tirage bins until it was disgorged in May and June 2016, and finished without dosage.
