Winemaker's Notes: This Classic Cuvée White is a blend of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from 2015. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and cool fermented separately, with only the free run juice was used for this sparkling resulting in a clean, crisp, delicate wine.
With secondary fermentation taking place in bottle, the wine was then aged in bottle for a minimum of 5 years, after which the bottles were disgorged and aged for a further 6 months on cork. A small part of the overall blend was both fermented and aged in oak to further the complexity and mouthfeel produced by a such a long period on its lees.
Here, Yannick Loue from Le Vignoble introduces the Classic Cuvée.
