The Exception 2012 Sparkling Pinot Noir Magnum

The Exception 2012 Sparkling Pinot Noir Magnum

A pale pink with peachy bronze hues. This wine shows aromas of strawberry cream, some stone fruits and a hint of yeasty brioche complexity. On the palate are notes of strawberry, stone fruits and some citrus. The mouth feel is creamy and long lasting with a fine moussey bead. 

We matured this wine  for five years on lees which built a rich complexity and released a wealth of savoury flavours. A creaminess is also brought to the texture of the wine due to the malolactic fermentation performed on the dry base wine prior to tirage. Our dosage was a blend of the wine itself, some sugar to balance acidity, and a tiny addition of XO Cognac to each bottle. The addition of Cognac is a practice only done by the most rare and expensive Champagne producers. This tiny addition provides a surprising extra layer of complexity to this wine. A truly exceptional wine that is sure to delight this festive season.
