Vinification details

As with all champagnes, secondary fermentation leads to the build up of pressure and infusion of bubbles into the wine, making this a stunning, naturally bottle fermented, matured on lees MCC. Grapes were crushed and destalked on arrival at the winery, followed by 18 days’ fermentation and secondary fermentation in the bottle. It was then kept on the lees for 16 months to ensure a fuller mouth feel, complexity and stable bubbles.
