    This classic brut style sparkling wine is composed of even parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Approachable yet very complex and elegant. The palate’s initial impression is of red fruits which then turns into crisp citrus and honey notes. The finish is crisp and clean.

    An early harvest date guaranteed the exceptional flavors and structure found in this refreshingly crisp classic sparkler. Specially selected Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes blend beautifully together to create the base wine for this Cuvee Brut. Using the traditional method, each bottle was hand riddled, aged on the lees for 2 years  resulting in a luxurious sparkling wine with depth and character. This labor intensive process ensures a rich and complex palate with delicate bubbles.
