The elegant style of Brut Elite is driven by the high portion of red fruits, Pinot Noir 57% and Pinot Meunier 8%, creating the velvety texture and rich flavours. A seamless palate of sophistication and poise displaying secondary flavours of field mushroom and brioche that overlay the lychee fruit, that further builds complexity and persistence. The Pinot Meunier also adds the delicate, soft and luscious characters, with firm natural acidity providing a backbone for the longevity and vibrancy of this wine.

Winemaking Notes

All three varieties are hand harvested and upon reaching the winery, the fruit is bunch pressed with only the premium juice fractions selected for primary fermentation. A small portion of the wine is fermented in first and second use French oak(93% stainless steel and 7% oak), with 100% of the wine undergoing Malolactic Fermentation. The wine develops complexity and finesse with four years in tirage.

Extended maturation on yeast lees further built complexity and depth of character into the wine.
