Tasting Notes

The wine was fermented in stainless steel, followed by malolactic fermentation to give extra suppleness. Following fermentation, the liqueur de tirage was added and the wine underwent a slow second fermentation in bottle, and extended ageing on its lees for seven to eight years. This resulted in a wine with a finer, more persistent mousse and greater potential for complexity. After disgorgement, the wine received a Brut dosage of 8g/l and was aged for a further six months minimum before release.

D Millésimé displays a deep gold color with hints of straw. Subtle and elegant aromas of white peaches and citrus zest are followed by light brioche notes. Fresh on opening, the palate evolves elegantly towards citrus notes, finishing on intense notes of dried fruit and pastry. A wine to enjoy now but can rest in the cellar to develop in complexity and intensity.

One of the greatest vintages in the last 30 years!
