With elegant acidity and crisp structure, this medium-bodies sparkling wine displays an excellent mousse and a rich, lingering finish. Refreshing acidity and fruit character makes Brut Prestige an excellent food wine.
This versatile and balanced sparkling wine is perfect for hors d’oeuvres, light seafood, poultry and vegetarian dishes. It is the perfect bottle to transform everyday moments into lasting memories.
Grapes are picked mainly at night, exclusively by hand, and delivered to the winery in signature “small yellow boxes,” to protect the integrity of each berry. At the winery, fruit is hand-delivered to the presses and slowly dejuiced at low pressure, with 4 press fractions kept separate. Low-temperature primary fermentation, mostly in stainless steel, is utilized to enhance fruit tones and preserve freshness. Wines are blended in winter and bottled in spring for the second bottle fermentation. An average of 18 months of yeast aging adds complexity, contributing subtle aged flavors while adding layers of creaminess. The wine is disgorged as a Brut style, and aged another 3 months on the cork to fully marry the dosage liquor to the base wine.
