Product Description

A blend of estate-grown, single-vineyard Chardonnay (70%) & Pinot Noir (30%). The fruit comes from a mix of two terroirs: grey gravelly loams over clay and red loam over gravel. At the time of harvest the vineyards were organically managed, in conversion to biodynamic certification. The base wines go through 100% malolactic conversion and the wine is according to the méthode traditionnelle. Aged for nine years on lees until disgorging on the 16th of November 2018. Dosage 4g/L.
The 2009 Grande Vintage is the 10th such release in the 24 years Steve and Monique have been making sparkling wine. Their Grande wines are made to show off the vintage they were grown in, selecting the best parcels of fruit to give freshness, elegance, balance and intensity. Only made in the best years, they are drier and more refined than the NV and are made entirely from the one vintage.

Pale straw with green-gold highlights. Excellent creamy mousse with persistent fine bead. Attractive toasty/pastry aromas with brioche and mushroom nuances. Wonderfully smooth, regal palate; great presence, with ripe vintage Pinot Noir influences balanced by efreshing/tangy natural acidity and our vineyard’s citrussy Chardonnay character. Despite the absence of oak in its winemaking, the wine is round, multi-layered and well-textured. Terrific persistence of flavour. Match with crab or pork dumplings; Chinese spring rolls; cold smoked salmon; whole barbecued lobster, cheese soufflés and the usual range of fine finger-foods and starters.

Winemaker's Note
 

REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES
"A 60/40% blend of chardonnay and pinot noir. The base wine did not have any oak maturation, but was taken through 100% mlf. It was taken to bottle in Nov '05, and disgorged in Oct '13. Bright, pale straw-green, excellent mousse; strong toasty/brioche aromas, layers of fruit flavour, with some pinot influence."
