2014 Extra Brut

2014 Extra Brut

Winemakers producing sparkling wine reverently speak of “Extra Brut” as the ultimate expression of their art and vineyard. When using a minimal amount of sugar in the dosage, the rewards can be splendid and memorable. We increase cellar aging to over five years for this limited production, late disgorged cuvée to enhance its sublime effervescence, tiny bubble trails, and delightfully fragrant mousse.
from $37.5 - $50

Tasting Notes

The bouquet on this lush, bright sparkling wine is full of vanilla and lime zest aromas underscored by toasty brioche.

On the palate, flavors of squeezed lemon, shortbread, and Key lime pie wrap around the mouth and finish with a hint of black cherry to create a beautifully balanced wine.

“Left to sit on the yeast for five years, this late-disgorged sparkler is rich, full-bodied and voluptuously textured. Melon, pear and dark-cherry flavors present as lengthy, nervy and fresh.”

Food Pairings

Try this Extra Brut with lighter fare such as ahi poke with wasabi crème fraîche, sesame seeds, and fried wontons, or spring rolls with a red chili sauce. Smoked trout salad with spicy arugula, avocado, and citrus vinaigrette, or even a truffle macaroni and cheese also make great pairings.

The 2014 growing season got off to an early start with bud break two weeks earlier than average. A late winter weather system brought in enough rain to supply the vines through bloom, and mild warm spring weather gave us good fruit set. Mild weather through the growing season with no rain events and no heat spikes was optimal for the development of the fruit. The early spring brought an early harvest with average size yields of excellent fruit.
