    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine pulls you in from across the room. The soft straw color, the tiny streams of minuscule bubbles, and as you raise the glass, you get full aromas of creamy vanilla poached pear and fresh sour dough starter. The first impression on the palate is of how well balanced this wine is, playing the purity of fruit off of the fresh acidity while showcasing the wine's natural mineral notes. There are notes of ripe guava, red Anjou pear, Meyer lemon, and lightly toasted brioche, finishing with notes of honeysuckle and lemon curd. This is a delectable example of a fresh, vintage dated sparkling wine to impress and please.

    Blend: 63% Pinot Noir and 37% Chardonnay

    Critical Acclaim:

    A light, airy style delivers plenty of pear and pineapple fruit, keeping the balance delicate and fresh. Shows a refreshing balance, and the flavors persist.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2008 Brut spent 3 years sur lie and received a dosage of 12 g/l. It displays a bouquet of brioche, pear, apple, and white peach. Crisp, balanced, and lengthy, this excellent value is meant for drinking over the next several years.

    Not sure there's a better producer of domestic sparkling wine (champagne).
