2008 Extended Tirage Brut

With the sparkling harvest lasting 3 weeks and drawn out into mid-October, the 2008 Extended Tirage Brut is bursting with crisp acidity and red fruit flavors. Aged upon the lees for 10 years before disgorgement, the wine is impressive for its depth and creamy layers of texture. Grilled plum, red cherry, honey, and orange rind are layered with the mature complexity of brioche and roast nuts, bringing harmony to a graceful and elegant finish.

2009 Extended Tirage Brut

Being one of the warmer growing seasons of the decade, the 2009 sparkling harvest was incredibly compressed, lasting just 6 days. This meant we had to be on point with our picking decisions in order to capture the pinnacle of  ripe fruit flavor and bursting acidity. Aged upon the lees for 10 years, Extended Tirage Brut is impressive for its balance of creamy layered texture with the vibrance of fresh disgorgement. Poached quince, crème de cassis, and roast hazelnut are layered with the mature brioche complexity, bringing harmony to its graceful, long finish.

2010 Extended Tirage Brut

A cool and steady growing season led to an October vintage, making for a brilliant sparkling harvest, highlighting the acidity, tension, and complex aromatics found in late ripening Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Aged upon the lees for 10 years, Extended Tirage is impressive for its balance of creamy layered texture with the vibrance of recent disgorgement. Fresh fig, honeycomb, and baked apple are layered with the mature complexity of roasted filberts and pastry dough, bringing harmony to a graceful and elegant finish.
