95% Chardonnay, 5% Pinot Meunier
In late September, the Chardonnay was hand-harvested, lightly foot trod and pressed with stems into neutral oak barrel. It completed primary fermentation (native yeast only) in 3 weeks. At this time, freshly-pressed, direct press Pinot Meunier was added as liqueur de tirage during bottling. The wine was then bottle-aged for 5.5 months on the lees before it was disgorged by hand in mid-April. Unfined, unfiltered, unsulfured.
