Joy! 2006

2006 Joy!
We are very excited to release a new expression of Joy! We call it Autumn Joy. It is vintage 2006 Blancs de Blancs, freshly disgorged with a tweaked dosage. Aged fifteen years en tirage and produced exclusively in magnum, it is a remarkable wine that offers complex depths of estate grown, Green Valley fruit over luscious richness gained from long aging on the lees. Made for celebrations. Limited production – no discounts.

TASTING NOTES

Warming aromas of lemon curd, shortbread, roasted nuts, and orange peel on the nose.  Delicate and refreshing, the Joy! Blanc de Blancs has a light finish that calls for another sip. Tiny bubbles create creamy effervescence, and honeycomb and ripe white grapefruit flavors.


VINEYARD NOTES

Location. Location. Location. Our proximity to the ocean in cool, foggy Green Valley yields a very distinctive style of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, especially for Sparkling.


WINEMAKER NOTES

What was once shy now exhibits wonderful complexity and creaminess that comes from 13 1/2 plus years of aging on the yeast. The dosage for this wine is 6 ml Brut LEX, 6 ml BDB LEX, 8 ml 2018 Rued Clone Chardonnay.

Lighter than air, puffed up high and golden brown, it’s center still soft and molten, this is a swoon worthy dish to pair with Joy!
