2010 Extended Tirage Knudsen Blanc de Blancs
Argyle 'Extended Tirage' wines are crowning achievements for vintage grower Sparkling Wine. Bottle fermented and aged ten years on the yeast, Argyle 'Extended Tirage' Knudsen Vineyard Blanc de Blancs is among the rarest wines made in America today and is the culmination of our founding ambition to create wines that endure. One of our most limited releases ever, we produced only 65 cases of this wine.
Extended Tirage wines are aged for ten years on the yeast and disgorged on demand to ensure freshness. Argyle’s Tirage Library in in Dundee has sparkling wines still aging on the yeast, dating back to our first vintage in 1987.
“The 2010 Blanc de Blancs Knudsen Vineyard Extended Tirage, disgorged in the summer of 2020, is precise and inviting, offering delicate bruised apple, biscuit and lemon cream on the nose. The palate is creamy and seamless with a balance of full fruits and pastry accents, precision and bass tones, and it is surprisingly youthful at this stage.” Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate, – 95 Points
