2016 Méthode Champenoise Brut

2016 Méthode Champenoise Brut

Crafted using méthode champenoise and sourced from estate-grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes that were harvested early in the season to retain their natural vibrancy.

On the Nose:
Fine bubbles elevate an appealing bouquet of mandarin orange, lemon, brioche and bergamot.

On the Palate: Attractive green apple, apricot and mineral notes meld seamlessly on the palate with hazelnut and pastry flavors gained from extended sur lie aging. The creamy and elegant structure combined with bright acidity carry these flavors through the lingering vibrant finish. 

Food Pairings: Enjoy in a toast during a celebration, or on its own before the start of a meal. Pair with delicate seafood dishes like fresh oysters, sashimi, lobster, caviar and grilled scallops or salty, creamy or nutty foods like fried calamari, chicken and waffles, smoked salmon, deviled eggs, stuffed mushrooms with brie and aged cheeses.

Peak Drinkability: 2019 - 2025.
