PAIR THIS VERSATILE SPARKLER WITH ASIAN SHRIMP DUMPLINGS WITH YUZU GLAZE OR STILTON CHEESE WITH TOASTED HAZELNUTS.

VITICULTURE NOTES

OUR SIGNATURE J CUVÉE 20 NON-VINTAGE BRUT — FIRST CREATED TO CELEBRATE OUR 20TH ANNIVERSARY — IS A STYLISH ASSEMBLAGE FROM OUR BEST COOL-CLIMATE VINEYARD SITES.

WINEMAKING NOTES

THE GRAPES FOR THIS CUVÉE WERE HAND-HARVESTED INTO SMALL QUARTER-TON BINS AND PLACED AS WHOLE CLUSTERS, WITHOUT DESTEMMING, INTO OUR FRENCH COQUARD PRESS FOR A GENTLE, LOW- PRESSURE PRESSING TO MINIMIZE THE BREAKDOWN OF GRAPE SKINS AND SEEDS. EACH VINEYARD LOT WAS FERMENTED AND KEPT SEPARATE UNTIL BLENDING. ULTIMATELY, OUR CUVÉE WAS ASSEMBLED AND COLD- STABILIZED TO REMOVE EXCESS TARTRATES AND THEN BOTTLED IN THE SPRING.

AGING

AS IS CUSTOMARY FOR TRADITIONAL METHOD SPARKLING WINE PRODUCTION, THE SECONDARY FERMENTATION OCCURRED IN THE BOTTLE. THE WINE WAS AGED EN TIRAGE IN OUR COOL CELLARS FOR AN AVERAGE OF 24 MONTHS, DEVELOPING DEEPER COMPLEXITY AS THE MONTHS WENT BY. BOTTLES WERE CAREFULLY RIDDLED TO REMOVE THE YEAST
SEDIMENT PRIOR TO DISGORGEMENT. FOLLOWING, THE WINE WAS AGED FOR AN ADDITIONAL SIX MONTHS ON THE CORK BEFORE RELEASE.
