"Great example of classic Vouvray sparkling. Rides the line between dry and off-dry. Earthy, mineral, and peppery on the nose. Crisp and sharp on the palate, with flavors of lively pear, lemon curd, lots of white pepper and spice balanced by creaminess at midpalate. Aged two years on the lees."

The fruit is harvested manually and goes through a rigorous three-step sorting process. The clusters are gently and slowly pressed whole,and juice flows by gravity to tanks below. Fermentation is spontaneous with indigenous yeasts in tank and lasts 4 to 6 weeks. The wine is racked into old tonneaux and steel tanks for 2 to 3 months of aging on the fine lees. The wine is then lightly filtered and bottled for its second fermentation. The 2017 Brut spent two years on its lees before disgorgement and a 6-gram dosage. 10g RS with 5g acidity.
