Le Ciel Serein Vineyard lies at the heart of the region and highlights cool climate grape growing at its best. An exquisite perfume of violet, lychee and brioche beckons the nose. The aromas echo on the palate, unveiling nuances of Meyer lemon, vanilla and ginger. Full and round, the wine's delicate, focused flavors glide long through the finish.
The 2014 growing year produced fruit of superb quality. We begin harvesting on August 8 as cooler temperatures provided us the time to pick the grapes at optimum ripeness. Drought conditions yielded small clusters and small berries with excellent concentration and complexity.
Our Château Society Members inspired us to initiate this Single Vineyard Sparkling Series and we’ve crafted it exclusively for them. Soon after introducing our Single Vineyard Pinot Noir Series at the start of the decade, members voiced their desire for a single vineyard sparkling wine as well. To craft these wines, we initially identify the standout vineyard at harvest, noting the fruit that best articulates a sense of place. Then, we taste it as a pre-cuvée to confirm, indeed, it is a truly complete wine with honest, expressive site character before guiding it through the exacting process of méthode traditionnelle. The greatest joy of crafting a single vineyard sparkling is tasting its unique evolution over time, as all the elements come together in an even more beautiful way than ever expected. We look forward to sharing these very special wines with you over the coming years.
