Joy! is a new Sparkling Cuvée from Iron Horse, produced only in magnums and aged 10 to 15 years on the yeast in the bottle. It is a gorgeous combination of elegance, refinement and power. Joy! is "non-vintage" or "multi-vintage" in the sense of representing a range of years. Production is very limited. We currently have 1,200 magnums sufficiently aged. Younger vintages will continue to age at Iron Horse until they reach this quality level.
Food PairingThe perfect, most glamorous, joyful aperitif. Pairs beautifully with freshly shucked oysters, thinly sliced smoked salmon; farm fresh radishes with rich, creamy butter and fleur de sel sea salt, pate.
AccoladesNew vintage, not yet reviewed. The prior release, 1997 Blanc de Blancs received 97 points from Wine Enthusiast, 92 points from wine Spectator, 9.5 (out of 10) from Alder Yarrow, Vineology. The previous vintage was awarded a near perfect 98 points by Wine Enthusiast , 93 points by The Wine Advocate, 92 points by Wine & Spirits and named one of the Top 100 Wines of the Year by WE and The San Francisco Chronicle. It was a finalist for Sunset Magazine's Annual Wine Awards. Jon Bonne in the San Francisco Chronicle says “… here's a wine that creates its own special occasion simply in the uncorking.”
