Winemaker Notes
“The introductory sparkling Rosé vintage shows a light pink hue that shines through the glass. The nose is intricate and intense intermixing fresh raspberry & strawberry and light floral tone. The aromatic purity is intense in the mouth and supported by bracing acidity and freshness. The flavors are precise, with small raspberry and strawberry, and complex rich floral undertones. The fine bubbles add to the complexity and depth leading to a long-lasting and fresh finish.” -Stéphane Vivier
Vineyard Notes
An early bud break, wet spring soils, and a long growing season produced a vintage with excellent quality. A wet spring started fast and rapid growth was met with average summer temperatures, which slowed development and reduced yields. The result was a moderate crop of well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest.
