A seriously fancy traditional method sparkling with 8 years on lees and zero dosage.

The fruit for this was handpicked and gently whole bunch pressed, before being transferred to old French oak for fermentation. No yeast, enzyme or nutrient was added and the ferment was kept at around 15 degrees to preserve aromatics. After primary ferment, the barrels had a small sulphur addition before resting over winter on the yeast lees. 6 months later, we assembled a blend of 40% pinot noir, 30% pinot meunier and 30% chardonnay, and bottled this, along with some yeast and nutrient to aid the second ferment in bottle. This wine aged 8 years on lees and was disgorged with zero dosage.

Only 30 dozen produced.

A classic Eminence sparkling; heaps of leesy complexity, tight fruit core and big secondary and tertiary flavours. Robust yet refined, mineral yet vinous, layered yet focused.
