Our second bottling of a Methode Traditionelle after the sold out 2014 vintage.
Imagine this…grapes picked early, when acid is too high and sugar too low to make normal wine, fermented and put in the bottle cloudy with a little sweet reserve, then fermented for the second time to make bubbles…madness. Left in the dark, cool cellar to gain flavour, balance and length before it’s disgorged, corked and labelled FIVE YEARS LATER!
But jingers it’s a lovely drink. Golden with a fine bead of bubbles, complex on the nose with vanilla, almond, brioche and brûlée flavours on the palate. Generous, rich and mouth filling, with a beaut dry finish.
A no-expense spared homage to great French fizz, and because Jo asked for it. Amen to that.
