Prestige Brut Estate is grown on our estate on the south side of Gaspereau Valley, planted in 2005 on deep schist, sandstone and sand- an ancient seabed. A three year terroir study conducted by French Bordeaux experts revealed that the grapevine roots are three feet deep and they have worked for every inch. Cropping yield is naturally balanced with moderate vigour and in 2013 gave a low 1.5 tonnes/acre, 22 hectolitres per hectare, similar to Grand Cru yield limits in Burgundy, France. The wine was aged 55 months sur lie and with its significant mineral backbone it can age further in the bottle post disgorgement. Traditional methods of  hand  riddling and disgorging to ensure utmost quality.

Tasting Notes
Toasty brioche aromas are dominant with mineral and a slight saline essence owing to the ancient seabed origins of our soil and proximity to the Bay of Fundy. *****92 Points Decanter World Wine Awards, London. England. Judges’ notes, "A floral, apple nose with chalky lemon and creamy pear on the refreshing, mineral palate." *****Daenna Van Mulligan,Wine Diva review (93 points) "Glinting golden with persistent bubbles, it offers aromas of peach jam and apple sauce, marmalade and brioche with autolytic undertones. Creamy, woven and harmonious, it shows soft yellow fruit, grilled lemon and nutty flavours"
