2011 Extended Tirage Brut
Even later than the 2010 vintage, 2011 was drawn out into early November to get the last of the sparkling wine ripe enough to pick. Especially in comparison to this modern era of picking sparkling wine in late August and early September, 2011 is a truly unique vintage to celebrate, as Mother Nature blessed us with a relatively dry autumn to help get us over the line. Highlighted by its tense backbone and well-framed acidity, the 2011 Brut was especially set up for long term aging on the lees. Creamy and layered textures are buoyed by the freshness of recent disgorgement. Ripe nectarine, white cherry, and honeycomb, are layered with the mature complexity of brioche and roast hazelnut, bringing harmony to a graceful and elegant finish.
