Classic Vintage Brut is a food lover that shines in the presence of all things spicy, salty or fried. Its classi partner would be a perfectly roasted chicken infused with flavors of fresh thyme and Meyer lemon. Eggs Benedict, lobster mac and cheese or French fries with truffle salt pair beautifully, while spicy tuna tartare makes for a sublime hors d’oeuvre.
On the nose, scents of rising dough, orange marmalade and baked apple. Flavors of ripe red apple, mandarin orange and hazelnut. Focused and complex, this is a beautiful sparkling with crispy pomme frittes with sea salt and black pepper, truffle popcorn, avocado and baby shrimp salad, bacon and watercress sandwich, wild mushroom tart, spaghetti with cream, parmesan and crispy onions, roast duckling with citrus.
Supple and richly styled, the 2012 Classic Vintage Brut is a 'classic' blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, a traditional and elegant showcase of the 2012 vintage, with over four years on the yeast. It is 'brut' level dry and vintage in every sense of the word. Rich, creamy and delicious with precise, pinpoint bubbles.
