Organic Methode Cap Classique La Verne Brut 2011

Varietal :        100 % Chardonnay


Organically farmed, trellised with drip irrigation with different cover  crops and organic mulching to stimulate healthy soil microbic activity. Strict pruning and green leaf management, essential for pest control and optimal ripening of the fruit. Tasted frequently by the winemaker and viticulturist to determine optimal ripeness.

Cellar : 

Second fermentation took place in the bottle and the wine spent 2 years  on the lees in the bottle before degorgement.

Yield per Ha  : 7 ton/ ha

Winemaker’s comments:

Harvested early in the season to preserve the natural acidity and delicate fruity flavours of the Chardonnay grapes, this elegant Blanc de Blancs presents a whiff of green apple and citrus on the nose. Seductive hints of sublte biscuit creates a lively multi-layered taste.

Food Pairing: Smoked Salmon Toasts and Oysters

Glass of Bubbly
