Le Grand Courtage Sparkling Wine $23.00 - $25.00 
Le Grand Courtage Sparkling Wine

The goal was to create an elegant sparkler with a perfect balance of fruit, acidity and sweetness along with fine bubbles and a crisp, light character.

Winemaker's Notes:
We picked our grapes at low sugar levels to ensure a lower alcohol level. We used precise temperaturing at 51° F for consistency and a slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks for primary and secondary fermentations. The blend was aged a minimum of 6 months on lees.

Aromas:
Fragrant with aromas of Granny Smith apples, honeysuckle, strawberry and toasted brioche.

Flavor Profile:
Perfect balance of fruit, acidity, and sweetness. Lingers nicely with a bit of Meyer lemon, honeydew and continuing apple finish. Great length, clean with a pleasant hint of yeast on the refreshing finish.

The Blend:
Chardonnay imparts depth and complexity for the overall balance while Chenin Blanc lends citrus and hints of honey for a creamy texture. Colombard's higher acidity provides structure, length and a pleasant minerality that is supplemented by the Ugni Blanc's fruit profile.

Pairs With:
Try it with savory hors d'oeuvres, buttered Popcorn, creamy pasta, mushroom or egg dishes, seafood, spicy Asian dishes, fruit based desserts or semi-soft cheese. A versatile accompaniment that is very cuisine-friendly.
