This 100% Chardonnay blanc de blancs has received rave reviews and is one of our finds of 2022!

This beautiful sparkling wine is made from ripe Chardonnay sparkling wine clones & required no chaptalisation due to a good growing season. The 2016 vintage was defined by an incredibly warm and dry autumn, which allowed grapes to be hand-picked at optimal ripeness. The base wine went through 100% malolactic fermentation and a small proportion then was aged in old oak to allow bâtonnage, creating a creamy weight to the base wine prior to tirage. The wine is stored for 45 months on the lees to promote an autolytic character with notes of brioche, almond and honey adding depth.
