No.1 Family Estate: Cuvée Virginie 2006
27th May 2015
Cuvée Virginie is blended from 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay and crafted especially by Daniel as a proud tribute to his daughter Virginie.
Almost four years on lees has produced a Methode Champenoise displaying many dimensions, it is well-rounded and has good yeast autolysis, a hallmark of this winemaker’s well-known style.
“Pale gold with a very fine, busy bead, this wine looks glorious in the glass. It has a rich vanilla citrus aroma that is yeasty and mildly nutty. The citrus notes provide crispness. The palate is rich and creamy with the fine bubbles creating a lovely mousse on the tongue. Cashew and citrus flavours sit well with the creaminess and there’s a ripe lick of apple towards the refreshing finish” – Marlborough Express December 2010
