I know you would like to be at the cutting edge of fine wine and Champagne and have something different that really stands out. This wine is 95% Chardonnay & 5% Aligoté from Maconnais, Yonne and Châtillonais make this a vibrant bright straw yellow with tinges of green. The nose is wonderful and it's color translates into the nose where very soft citrus notes mingle with the essence of fresh, dewy grass and aromas of fresh cracked nuts to form a symphony of depth and punch. The mouth is crisp with a bright acidity playing beautifully alongside flavors of pink grapefruit and then leads to layers of fulfillment and lusciousness. A pneumatic press is used to crush the Chardonnay. Next, the wine undergoes alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and then is put in bottles to form its bubbles through the Méthode Traditionnelle. It is aged for 24 months; far past the legal requirement of 9 months, to ensure that the lees impart the maximum aromas and finesse to the wine.
