' Heart & Hands - Wine

2010 Blanc de Noirs

Enticing sparkling wine crafted in the Traditional Method (Méthode Champenoise). Begins with beautiful aromas of brioche and toast on the nose, followed by  hazelnuts and apricots on the complex palate. The finish is dry and brisk, yet decadent. 
Aromas of brioche and toast tempt the senses, followed by hazelnuts and apricots on the rich, complex palate. The finish is dry and brisk, yet decadent.
The Pinot Noir grapes that comprise this wine were hand picked, then carefully hand sorted to select only the highest quality fruit. The grapes were then gently basket pressed at low pressure to extract only the clear juice, and to prevent the skins from bleeding. The extracted juice was then stainless steel fermented to complete dryness. In the 2011, the wine was bottled, and yeast was added as part of the tirage to induce a secondary fermentation. The wine rested en tirage for nearly 7 years to create fine bubbles and scuplt the volume. A final dosage at disgorgement was added to finish the wine in a brut, or dry style.
This wine pairs well at the front end of the meal and is substantial enough to stand up to main courses. Enjoy with uni, fresh raw oysters, panko-crusted crab cakes, or as a standalone aperitif.
