100% Chardonnay, this is our vintage méthode traditionelle sparkling. Bottle aged for 42 months before release.
The time in old oak after primary fermentation gives the wine its power and persistence. The lengthy time on lees adds a lot complexity to the wine, and makes it eminently drinkable. The finish is clean and long.
The Bizot vineyard is situated in the heart of Piccadilly Valley, and is one of the highest vineyards in the valley at 500m altitude. The soil is red clay and sandy loams over a 70 million-year-old shale rock formation. The Chardonnay is planted on a north-north east facing slope.
The terroir in the higher, cooler slopes of the Piccadilly Valley makes it ideal for Sparkling wine produced using Méthode Traditionnelle.
