“It’s a unique thrill to open a bottle of sparkling wine for the first time and find that it’s bubbling and delicious. Our zero dosage bottlings are about appreciating how beautiful these wines can be in their raw, vibrant state."
Fresh aromas of lemon pith, tart apple, cucumber, granite, with a whisper of mint and a light yeastiness. On the palate, this wine is very dry and crisp, with hints of grapefruit, integrated, balanced acidity, a burst of pineapple in the mid palate, and a fine bead that has a smoothing presence.
Chardonnay 44%, Pinot Noir 34%, Pinot Meunier 22%
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 September 2017 and finished without dosage.
