This is an elegant and delicate, single vintage, traditional method rosé sparkling wine. 2018 was a great year, receiving lots of sunshine, so they decided to let the fruit characteristics come through by keeping the yeast selection neutral. The final blend reached a poised but demure total acidity.
The grapes (68% Pinot Noir, 28% Pinot Meunier, 4% Chardonnay) are hand-picked and pressed to tank, each vinified separately with neutral yeasts (IOC 18-2007 was the dominant strain used). As 2018 was a ripe year, they put some but not all of the batches were put through malolactic fermentation, and then was bottled for secondary fermentation where it remained for 18 months on the lees. It was then disgorged and topped with an 8.6 gram per liter dosage before receiving a dose of sulfur and a final cork.
