2015 Extra Brut Luxe Cuvée
This beautiful 2015 Methode Champenoise sparkling wine is a marriage of Chardonnay from Jim Pratt's Irwin Lane Vineyard and Inman Family's Olivet Grange Vineyard (OGV). This is the first sparkling that Inman has produced which is not 100% estate Pinot Noir. This classic blend of 28% Chardonnay and 72% Pinot Noir manages to be bright and crisp with lots of fresh apple, pear, and alpine strawberries while at the same time being rich and complex as a result of nearly four years aging on the yeast. The fermentation in the bottle finished with 0.081% residual sugar and no additional sugar was added as a dosage. The generous mousse is created by the very fine bead. This serious, vintage-dated sparkler is the perfect wine to celebrate with or to pair with caviar and blinis or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
