NV Brut Sparkling
We fermented this wine cold and slow in stainless steel, to keep it aromatic, lively and fresh. After the primary fermentation, the wine is bottled with a tirage (mixture of sugar and yeast). The yeast acts on the sugars and results in carbon dioxide being trapped in the bottle. This wine was aged on yeast for 18 months, before the final process of disgorging, adding the dosage and the traditional cork with wire cage is added. The final Brut level dosage balances the acidity beautifully. This refreshing sparkling wine is done in the classic Mèthode Champenoise style.
