We acquired the small La Rocaille vineyard 25 years ago. Its light clay-loam soils are exceptional for the historic clones of Pinot Noir that go into our Sparkling wines. The wine opens with a refined, delicate nose of pear, honeysuckle, and vanilla, with just a touch of brioche. In contrast, the palate possesses a serious density and drive; flavors of toasted nuts, pie crust, ginger and lime zest linger in a long finish. Even in its youth, this wine shows beautiful complexity and integration, displaying a richness most typically found in Late Disgorged Sparkling.
