Picking this Chardonnay super early ensures the zingy acidity necessary to produce quality sparkling wine in our hot, dry, southern French climate. We used the traditional method to create this sparkling wine, carefully picking and gently pressing the fruit to minimise extraction of colour and phenolics before cold settling and fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine underwent secondary fermentation in the bottle and then spent 12 months ageing on its lees prior to disgorgement.

Having now aged for 4 years under cork, this is now a beautifully mature sparkling wine with evolved aromas of honey, subtle autolytic development and ripe, generous fruit flavours.  It remains a complex yet balanced and refreshing method traditional wine.

Colour – Pure gold with a fine bead.
Nose – Inviting and clean with underlying notes of honey, marzipan and apricot.
Palate – Precise acidity with a medley of riper citrus and orchard fruit and a hint of biscuit.
