2016 Brochelle Bubbles

2015 Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay

Brochelle Bubbles is a dry Brut-style wine with a whisper of sweetness. The creamy texture continues to develop as the wine ages. A bouquet of toasty yeast creates suppleness on the mid-palate with a bright, crisp impression of apple, and then finishes with the soft ripeness of nectarine.

This wine is made in the Méthode Champenoise style, a high-quality sparkling wine known for its creamy flavor and tiny bubbles. A traditionally fermented Chardonnay is bottled and a small amount of "liqueur de tirage" (mostly sugar and yeast) is added, triggering a secondary fermentation. This takes place inside the bottle, producing the carbon dioxide or "bubbles." These tiny bubbles signify exceptional quality. The bottles are stored in a temperature and light-controlled environment for 18 months.

The bottles are riddled (a gradual tilting of the bottle which allows the spent yeast cells to collect in the bottle-neck), the neck is frozen and the yeast is then disgorged.  Each bottle receives a cork and wire cage and the end result is an amazing sparkling wine that will delight your palate providing the perfect celebratory drink for any occasion!

We sincerely hope you enjoy this offering!
