Library release - 2010 Prestige Brut Estate

2010 growing season had elevated heat units prompting us to pick early on September 24 at 18 Brix and 9.75 g/l titratable acidity. The young 5 year old certified organic Estate vines already showed enhanced minerality and salinity from the unique rocky ancient seabed soil. Only free run and lightly pressed juice was used.
All components of this wine are in harmony leading to our decision to not sweeten with expedition dosage. Our first Zero Dosage release. Tirage: 5 years  
Hand riddled and hand disgorged.

Winemaker Notes
This was an exceptional growing season and international judges noticed. Aging on cork has softened and made this wine more rich and complex. We will have an extended tirage release (10 years on the lees) of this wine later this year.
