Head Blender notes:

““I vowed only to make a Blanc de Blancs if the Chardonnay had bags of personality, and boy did it in 2013! The grapes had range, depth, complexity, and plentiful punchiness to drive the wine through long ageing.

With a focus on purity, the blend contains just four parcels, now singing together as a harmonious whole a decade later. Combining linearity from the largest parcel, phenolic intrigue from a single oak barrel’s worth of second-pressing juice, and a generous texture from our clay site, this is a wine to savour.

An ebullient crown for our collection.”

CEO & Head Blender
