2011 MCC - Pinot Noir & Chardonnay

Varietal: 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay

Description:  Brut, crisp apples, full creamy mid palate with oodles of butter, brioche and croissant nuances. This blend was hand-crafted, hand-picked and hand-sorted before pressed in whole bunches. The blend underwent secondary fermentation in the bottle and languished on its' lees for three years before riddling and disgorgement in small batches. Perfectly paired with the daily celebrations of life!
