NO1 FAMILY CUVEE VIRGINIE
NEW RELEASE 30TH OCTOBER 2020.
Cuvée Virginie is a vintage Méthode Traditionelle crafted especially by Daniel as a proud tribute to his daughter Virginie. The wine is only made in exceptional vintages and the 2016 is due for release 30th October 2020.
From the growing period through to harvest 2016 all of the elements were in balance and the grapes ripened to perfection. They were hand-picked in pristine condition showing excellent fruit intensity and pretty aromatics from the Mendoza clone Chardonnay. The resulting Cuvée Virginie 2016 is a wine with elegance and finesse.
A pretty bouquet with light stone fruit, honey and defined toasty autolysis. The fine mousse leads to flavours of brioche, white peach, soft citrus and green apple. Uplifted and vibrant with delicate autolysis followed by a silky, long dry finish. This is a wine with elegance and finesse.
