2009 was a near perfect growing season, what we consider to be the vintage of the decade. Grapes ripened slowly and evenly leading up to harvest that started the last day of August, producing opulent layers of flavor.
2009 Late Disgorged Brut Cuvée offers enchanting aromas of warm pastry crust, lychee nut, and poached pear. The palate delivers white flowers, and honeycomb with notes of passion fruit and toasted hazel nut complimenting the luxuriously long finish.
This cuvée is composed of 59% Pinot Noir and 41% Chardonnay. Approximately 7% of the cuvée underwent malolactic fermentation prior to blending.
