Fleuraison Blanc de Blancs
Varietals: 80% White Airen, 20% Chardonnay
Vinification: The bunches of White Airen are harvested very early. They are vinified with a modern approachof winemaking, in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The goal is to get a base wine as fresh and fruity as possible with a very good acidity. No malolactic fermentation. The base wine is then carried to France in isolated tank lorries. It is blended with the juice of Chardonnay before the second fermentation takes place in pressure tanks with selected yeast. Second fermentation and bottling are done under the rigorous control of our oenologists.
Aroma/Palate: Green tints on a limpid robe, the brilliance of a fine bubble increases the vividness. Fine perfumes of flowers (the name "Fleuraison" means flowering/blossoming). A nose of butter and hazelnut then introduces a palate of brioches and almond. The appropriate dosage and the length on the palate persist during the tasting.
Food Pairings: Although this vin mousseux blanc de blancs is a perfect pre-dinner drink, it is also a perfect accompaniment to scallops or river fish.
Serving Temp: Serve at 4 to 8 °C as a pre-dinner drink or dessert wine, and 6 to 9 °C with main meal.
