Vintage

Harvest is carried out when the grapes have achieved the perfect balance of acidity and alcohol. The grapes are hand-picked and placed in small cases of up to 5 kg in order to prevent damage to the fruit prior to pressing. This also helps the grapes to maintain their natural freshness grown at these altitude levels.

Ripening

The secondary fermentation takes place slowly in the bottle at a constant temperature between 13-14° C. The wine stays in contact with the lees for a minimum of 24 months, following with dégorgement.

Tasting notes

It has a pale powder pink color with a fine, persistent, and elegant froth. The nose shows hints of freshly baked bread, nutmeg, rose petals, currant, raisins, and wild strawberries.

Food pairings
