Vinification The grapes were pressed using a traditional Champagne cycle and press cut. The wine proceeded through a native primary and malolactic fermentation in barrel. The wine was racked once and tirage bottled without fining or filtering. After approximately two years under tirage the wine was riddled and disgorged à la volée with zero dosage.
Notes Tasting notes from Michael : An intense perfume of earth and fruit. Honey comb, pear overlay a light autolytic pastry note of sweet pastry cream and vanilla. On the palate, delicate berry fruit, unripe melon, with bright acidity and a tremendous length. The oak woodlands of California on a warm summer day.
