2014 Small Lot Brut

2014 Small Lot Brut

This is a classic Brut, with aromas and flavors of pear and dried apricot with hints of floral and crème brulee and apple. It has nice complexity from the sur lies aging in the Methode Champenoise, and has a refreshing crispness and lingering vanilla cream aftertaste that pairs exceptionally well with food.
