BACKGROUND

The harvest is hand picked from mid-August to the beginning of October. Wines destined for Cava will form part of the tirage mixture consisting of selected yeasts and sugar which, once in the bottle will generate second fermentation in strict accordance with the traditional method. The first fermentation is very slow and at low temperature in order to assist the formation of secondary aromas. The wine then undergoes 2nd fermentation in the bottle according to the traditional “Méthode Champenoise”. We employ a strain of yeast to achieve the velvety and creamy mouth feel. After a lengthy ageing period, the disgorgement of Paul Cheneau takes place, releasing its aromas and bouquet to full satisfaction.

TASTING NOTES

Crystal-clear greenish color with golden highlights. Fine and constant bubbles forming a great rosary on the top of the glass, a nose of wild meadow flowers fusing into pleasant fruit aromas and subtle ageing undertones. The palate is fresh with good acidity and balanced with very subtle floral undertones and flavors of creamy pastries. Nice lively finish, lingering on the palate.
