2011 Brut    

2012-brut

Tasting Notes

In the glass, pale golden colour with a light straw hue. On the nose, suggestions of freshly squeezed lime juice are complicated by hints of smoke and sea minerals. On the palate, notes of baked green apples and natural almonds lead to a long, invigorating finish. A wine of substantial proportion, marrying intensity and elegance.

With more than 15 experience producing Méthode Classique sparkling wine in the Gaspereau Valley, we are confident in calling the 2011 a standout vintage. While the long growing season was cool, the regulating effects of the Bay of Fundy allowed for moderate and slowly acquired grape ripeness, perfect for our internationally acclaimed sparklings.
