This blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay brings big bubbles and bold flavors. Its cherry and berry fruit puts it squarely in a New World style, and it was sourced from some of the estate's oldest vines. A March 2016 disgorgement, it's drinking well at this time, finishing with a touch of dark chocolate.
