"Strings of dainty pearls in liquid gold". Made in the traditional French method of allowing a second fermentation to take place in the bottle. The extended period on lees, allowed time to add to the creamy complexity of this sparkling wine. It resulted in a bouquet of baked brioche, apples with fresh lemon and grapefruit aromas, enticing your senses. A vibrant sparkling wine with a crisp and integrated acidity. This Blanc de Blancs is to be savoured on any memorable occasion.

Chardonnay grapes from 24-year-old vines (1.5ha); supplementary irrigation; whole-bunch pressing. Cap Classique: made according to the traditional method involving second fermentation in the bottle. Aged for 52 months on the lees (spent yeast).
