The grapes were picked clean at a low sugar level and then pressed gently whole cluster to a very low juice yield (475L/tonne). A cool fermentation ensued using Prise de Mousse yeast and then the wine was finned and filtered in preparation for first bottling. Tirage bottling occurred in the spring of 2011 using a DV10 yeast. The secondary fermentation was conducted at cool temperatures, in the bottle in a traditional fashion. After more than 27 months en tirage, the wine was cooled and disgorged manually by our skilled cellar staff. We added the liqueur d’expedition, topped the bottles and sealed them under an extra cool crown cap.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
In the 2010 vintage we kept 4 rows of our famous Old Vines Chenin Blanc to use for our sparkling wine. These old vines were planted in 1968 and they produce grapes that show great finesse and concentration. We expect nothing less from vines of this age and from great terroir.
