This wine is sublime … an absolutely sublime stickie! Honey drenched peaches, applesauce, pear purée and lime cordial are built on a full-bodied frame. Even though there are 280 grams of sugar, the wine is not cloying, as the elevated acid gives the wine lift and definition.
This is the exciting result of a bold decade-long project. Made in the manner of top Vintage Champagne with the classic encépagement. Fewer than 1,000 bottles have been produced. Refined, somewhat austere on the nose, displaying restrained fruit with mineral and bready overtones. There is good weight on the palate, simultaneously expansive and austere in the classic Champagne mode. Subtle citrus fruit character is enhanced by fine mousse, dynamic acidity and delightfully creamy texture.
