Our Late Disgorged Brut is a small cuvée comprised only of grapes grown in our own vineyards. In 2009 we made our ﬁrst prototype of this cuvée and we were so pleased with the results that we committed to produce it on an ongoing basis exclusively for our Wine Club members and winery guests. We love this wine now, but know it has exceptional further aging potential.
Brioche, lychee, honeysuckle, and vanilla bean on the nose surge seamlessly to caramelized pineapple, crème anglaise, and golden apple on the palate. Supple and complex, this wine possesses an elegant balance of fullness and freshness that sails in a delightfully long finish.
A defining feature of this remarkable vintage is in the even growing of the grapes. We began to harvest on August 15 and enjoyed moderate harvest conditions, which allowed us to pick the fruit slowly and consistently as it achieved the perfect ripeness. It was a larger than normal yielding harvest of very fine quality.
Food Pairing Notes
We recommend pairing it with rich double and triple cream or goat cheeses. Perfect with just a few toasted nuts, it will also enhance simple to complex meals. Oysters, poultry and even meat dishes work well and we suggest trying it with Asian cuisine.
