2015 La Rocaille Single Vineyard Sparkling Bottle

2015 La Rocaille

We are thrilled to showcase our La Rocaille Vineyard for our second Single Vineyard Sparkling release. Starting with the 2014 vintage, we have selected fruit from a single vineyard each year that truly exemplifies its site, wholly and vividly. These are special wines: finely detailed singular portraits of each of the five vineyards that comprise our symphonic Estate Brut.

Tasting Notes

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.
